End of the Week Reflection

This week, I made 3 paintings. The paintings of the flag and chair I already posted about. Today, because I wasn't sure what to do, I decided to do a water color pencil/painting of a peacock feather. Looking ahead, I want to start my final piece. I decided I'm going to do a painting of something looking through something else, whether it's a window or tunnel. I'm not sure yet whether I want to do it on canvas or maybe wood. I will look for inspiration on materials over vacation. Maybe I will begin painting over vacation.

208 Squares #12

This week's theme is The Chair. I decided to do a painting of a somewhat simple wooden chair.

7th and 8th Finished Pieces

I finished two more painting for my holiday calendar. I am now done with all the pieces for the calendar and hope to order it soon.

This painting represents Thanksgiving for November. I didn't want to do something too cliche so I decided to do a realistic closeup of a turkey. It took me about an hour to finish.

This painting represents Labor Day for September.
