Today's assignments

 
Mt. Evans in oil in process
8x10 1 1/2" gallery wrap canvas

My oil rendition of Mt. Evans is FINALLY dry enough to paint over, so I'm off and running.  If you look closely you can see the ASPEN trees I've lightly sketched on the painting for placement and I'm ready to begin adding them.  I could have added the pine trees like I did in the collage version, but with the muted colors in the mountain itself I felt it would make a nice impact and have great contrast with aspen trunks in front. This is what I love so much about being an artist...MY OWN INTERPRETATION!!  Years ago when I had just begun I might not have added things like this as I wasn't familiar with the subject matter, but since I've done my fair share of aspen paintings I feel comfortable interpreting this scene from my mind's eye...Hopefully it will turn out...stay tuned to see!

I've also begun to lay out what I'm going to make during my demo at Hobby Lobby this Saturday.  I'm making a necklace with pink...so I painted and stamped canvas in preparation of making canvas beads to go with the interesting beads I bought...FUN STUFF!!

HAPPY CREATING everyone!!

The oil painting is looking fabulous, Saundra. Can't wait to see it completed. Also looking forward to seeing what you do with the canvas. The colors are lovely!
