Christy Lemp wash #73 #74 #75

Another week has flown by and holidays are pushing their way into everyone's already busy schedule. Time to schedule, prioritize, and take time for yourself a little bit.  I loved doing this little painting-after a year of having this little tree and its reflections in my head, and many swipes at capturing it, I think I have what I was envisioning.  I better paint some more while the technique is still in my brain.

the next two are close ups of a rooster that  I chose to use for my painting class.  I was desperate for a subject as it was 9:30 a.m. and class was at 10:00.  I trolled thru my photo captures and remembered this rooster from a nearby farm.  He is a beauty. I always hesitated doing this animal because so many artists already do them so well, but I'm glad I jumped into this one. He was so pretty, and the brush seemed to be painting him without much help from me!  I'll post the completed picture next time.

thanks Jane! We had a little art show this weekend-all of our painting class students- and the rooster was a hit! Hard to compete with Jean haines beautiful ones but it was fun all the same.
