Since I have been uninspired and unsucessful lately, I decided to try something different. I have taught myself to paint in watercolors, so why couldn't I improve on my acrylics? I always like to do my own painting ideas, and that is hard and takes a lot of creativity. I also like to enjoy painting, so I decided to do this painting of Andrew Wyeth. To make it challenging, he did it in watercolor, so I did it in Acrylics. In the begining, painting with the brush was difficult, so I grabbed the palette knife, and used it for most of the painting. I feel satisfied, and I know I did a great job!!!

I did the first version of this painting on Christmas of 2005. I can't tell which version is better. My technique is improving, but sometimes it over takes my passion. It is a good exercise nevertheless!

Rainy Weekend

It has been a rainy week. It also have been very busy. I had to go to a conference last weekend, and I have been coming back late from work during the past few weeks!

Today is Saturday, I came back in the afternoon from work. The fire was going, and Schubert was playing, so I felt inspired. The bright colored one is from a sketch I did near my house just before all the clouds and the rain came in. The two trees are from my memory. I was sitting at Helen's yesterday eating lunch during my break, and across the Machias river, rain was falling and it was very misty. I used some ink following the footsteps of my favorite watercolor artist, Blockley! I like the trees painting better and it is a better reflection of the past rainy few days!!!

The Trail's End

This is a remake of the old man with the blue jeans. I am still wondering if I should throw the leaves and twigs on the left upper corner!?
