I missed posting the last couple weeks so... I'm calling this done! Ready to move on, away from snow.

Callie-Che

I'd have to say my cat Callie is my favorite thing to paint. She's got such fun colors and patterns. And her big mane makes her look so regal. I could go on and on but I'll just get to the latest painting!

Spring is coming

Even though I hate it when they take over my yard, I've always thought there is something so charming about dandelions. It was fun to mix all the yellows for this one, I definitely see more dandelion painting in my future!

Daily Paintworks Challenge

Here's my first attempt at a landscape. Can you identify this North Shore state park? Maybe the root beer like wild flow at the river's mouth is a good hint.



Submitted this to the Daily Paintworks weekly challenge, my first submission to that website (free to do this). The weekly challenge can give some ideas of things to try out. This week's challenge was painting with only three colors and white, which is easy if you set aside one of the phthalo blues!

Anyone know how to best photograph one's painting?

Excited to see everyone's works!

Paint Mpls

Hello! I've created this blog to keep me motivated to paint weekly, and in hopes others will do the same. I'm inspired by the work of Kat Corrigan, so have invited my cohorts of her winter 2014 class to join me here. Let's paint, people!

Hiawatha golf course, xc skiing in March. Light was amazing. Practicing painting snow.
