A coworker wanted me to paint a picture of 2 cows with horns somewhat looking at each other. She wanted a cow cloud to represent her sister in heaven. Here is the painting prior to removing the tape around the border. I will be giving it to her today. She looked at it last week and made a couple of suggestions.
I painted a hibiscus last year, which looks fairly nice, but I felt it was overworked. This year I did another one trying not to overwork the painting. This is still a challenge for me.
A House in Lancaster
I am from Lancaster, WI and there are many old houses there. Dennis Wilson has been posting some wonderful picutres on "You Know You are from Lancaster if". I have painted a couple of his photos (with his permission). This house I added bushes because I did not get the angle right on the front of the house... so they cover up my boo-boo... I think I will do a couple more houses...Thank you Dennis!
Here is Penelope. She was born in the hand's of my son's friend Tylor. Tylor named the calf Penelope and has watched her grow up.
I painted a cow!
A friend told me if I painted a cow she may buy the painting. Of course this inspired me to try and paint a cow.... so I found a cow picture on Paint My Photo: http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/photo/img-9690-1024x683http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/photo/img-9690-1024x683 I drew ot the picture, masked over the cows and started painting the background. After that was finished I painted the front cow. This was challenging. I know I needed to add depth to the black, so painted layer
Are you hungry? Here is a chicken dinner with baked potato, cole slaw and bun. One of my nursing home resident's wanted me to paint a chicken leg, but I wanted more than that. Hope you like it!
One of my nursing home residents said I should paint food (chicken leg,,,that is coming)... to start with I found a picture on Paint My Photo of blueberry muffins, so I painted them. I thought they look good enough to eat. http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/photo/blueberry-muffins
