First Date

First Date
One of the 7 paintings that are going into an art show.

This was a really fun painting. All the yellows, oranges and reds were fun to smoosh around on the canvas. The hardest parts are the wine. Getting the wine to flow smoothly is always a challenge because it's a liquid.

And I have finally come the the conclusion that I have a really hard time adding blog descriptions to my paintings :)

Equestrain Silver

I actually did on August 11, but didn't really feel like posting it.

My favorite of the two B&W horse head paintings. There is a mane on this horse, but in the original picture you can't see the mane. My dad said that it looked funny because there is no mane showing.
I edited the painting though. The thin strap that goes under the horses jaw originaly wasnt there. It was a chain, but I felt like it was pulling the focus away from the beauty of the head so I changed it. It personaly looks much better without it.

Ivory Queen

Black and white painting

I have has trouble painting because of the heat that we are getting. Because it is hot we have had our windows open, which means air flow, which dries out the paint before I can work with it. But all-in-all the painting worked out.
Thanks to Vrenith, this painting has been named "Ivory Queen". Great name, Vren!!!!!! LOVE it!!!
I am working on other horse paintings so look out for them.
