In the Yard
Before the first of the year, a friend gave me a box of blank greeting cards for oils or acrylics. I was so excited about having these that I thought I'd paint her a picture of a type of boat she use to own and send it to her as a Thank You. As you know, the best laid plans, etc. The above painting is the result of that attempt and needless to say she deserved better.
I've signed up for a workshop in Portland, OR, about 3 hours away from here, this coming Friday. If all goes well I will come home with some basics and more confidence in my oil painting tries.
I'm in the middle of some painting exercises from a Charles Sovek book and I'll post these later this week.
