Little Blue Bird

~Another  little painting~
"Turning a Corner" Oil on Gesso Board

Just a quick update!
Life has been so busy with work and kids!
Madison just turned 18 and I just can't believe that
Zac turns 21 on Saturday.
Where does the time go?
My job turned full time at the beginning of the year
and I still get to paint in the studio once a week!
Wayne also built me a small studio 
here in the house and I try to 
get in there when I can.

Same little Bird- Take 2

I found an old copy of Black Beauty
at the Thrift Store a few months back.
Three books for a dime provided
me with the perfect back drop
for a second attempt at the
little bird I painted for my 3 color challenge.

"South for the Winter"- Acrylic on Board
7" x 3 1/2"

I decoupaged a page from the book onto the piece of board
then lightly painted over it with a thin coat of wall paint. 
My last bird was done in oil, however I wanted
the wording to show in the background,
so I opted to keep this one tighter and use
acrylic!

Chickadee 3

I was so excited to be able to participate in this weeks

The challenge this week was to create a picture using only 3 colors.
Those three colors could be used along with White
to make a total of 6 colors.

I decided to keep my pallet very neutral and used
Burnt Umber
Yellow Ochre
Unbleached Titanium
and
Titanium White!
