Two more speed paintings today! The strawberries are from early last season, and the zucchini are in their prime from last August. These are both 11x14, acrylic on canvas; the strawberries took 2 hours, the zucchini took 3 because I didn’t like the stalk color and decided to paint it over!
Getting better with speed. This is good. :)
Tried a little speed painting today. This is a portrait of a lovely bunch of fresh-picked heirloom tomatoes from my yard; I gave myself 2 hours to paint, then put my brush down. This was the result. (the color is much nicer in person - I’m trying to get used to a new camera and it’s a little wonky still!)

I got a pack of itty bitty canvases to play with. This is the first one - a rose from my yard in pen. I can’t decide whether I want to watercolor it or leave it black and white! It’s cute though - 3” square, which is smaller than the rose itself!
It’s art time!
I figured it was about time I learn digital painting. I’ve had a hand-me-down tablet for a while but haven’t used it, so I decided to mess around a bit in photoshop.
I’m totally enamored with knightJJ’s Atlas webcomic, and I kept thinking of drawing the characters like one of my French girls. heh. So here is Biana :)

I challenged myself to see what I could do in a day. This wasn’t a bad attempt. :)
A heron for my MIL’s birthday. Acrylic on canvas, 8x10.
Hopefully it won’t disappoint her too much that this is my first attempt at painting a bird!
