I think sparrows are overlooked beauties, I guess because they are so common.
They have beautiful patterns and lovely muted colors.

OIL PAINTING OF BOATS AT FISHERMAN'S WHARF IN PROGRESS

11 X 14 OIL ON CANVAS SOLD
Not quiet finished with this one....near tho. Fisherman's Wharf  is full of great boat scenes to paint.  You would think I would pick something simpler to warm up after not painting for 8 days... the longest  time in three years!
Since I got back there has been one ordeal after another to deal with... besides the catch-up things.   Taking a vacation  seems to be more work than it's worth.  Next time I may just check in to a beach side condo here  in Gulf Shores.

PASTEL PAINTING OF BOATS ON BLUE WATERS

PASTEL BOATS ON BLUE WATERS
8 X 10 PASTEL ON CANSON PAPER
This is my 3rd pastel painting and I miss the magic of my rich creamy oils!!  I have about decided against taking pastels to Carmel. for the paint-out.  Maybe I will buy some oil paints there or just take a much needed vacation and forget the painting.  I do plan on taking tons of photos for new reference material.  I will probably not post for a week but please come back to see me.  Even tho, I don't always reply to comments,  I so appreciate your input. By the time I get thru painting and posting each day this senior citizen is totally exhausted..  .I did find out that my thyroid is not functioning right so hoping the meds will help there.

PASTEL PAINTING OF WOMAN AND CHILD AT THE BEACH

10 X 8 PASTEL ON CANSON PAPER
 It has been several years since I painted with pastels and it is not an easy transition from oil painting.
I had planned to take them to Carmel next week to use at the paint out the American Impressionist Society is hosting at Fisherman's Wharf.    This went a little more quickly than the first one I painted on a very rough sanded paper.

GOING BANANAS

5 X 7 OIL ON PANEL SOLD
I like the fresh color in this little still life with bananas.  I kept the painting simple using broad strokes of clean color.  And yes I am going bananas, looking for new things to paint, trying to decide what to take to Carmel for the American Impressionist Show etc etc.   I think I am going to take pastels to use on the paint-out as I don't want to deal with transporting wet oils and getting them through airport security.

PEPPER PARTY WORKSHOP DEMO IN PROGRESS

11 X 14 OIL ON CANVAS
This oil painting is a 40 minute demo I did for my  still life workshop today.  I  wanted to emphasize the importance of  keeping the painting loose and designing the canvas,  concentrating on the big shapes.  I plan to carry it just a little further and hopefully not destroy the spontaneity.
