As fall is fast approaching I am being drawn to paint some fall stuff. This was from a photo I took when we toured the fall of back east. It was quite beautiful but really the fall that year in Oklahoma was better.
Day 18 of the 30 Day Painting Challenge and I have decided to do a landscape scene today. A few years ago Robert and I took a trip to Ireland and it was spectacular. I took probably 500 pictures and have painted a few of them. The first day we arrived the view out our bedroom window was this. I was totally in love with the green and freshness that was Ireland.
Here we are over halfway through the 30 Day Painting Challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta. I chose this photo from my old family pictures. This is my Daddy, #43 who played for the Broken Arrow Tigers in 1954. He was #43. The photo was black and white so I had to make up some colors but since I knew "OUR" school colors were black and gold I think this was an easy one. Enjoy.
This painting is from a photo I took probably 45 years ago at my great-grandparents house in Jay, Oklahoma. The place holds some of the most important memories of my life and I always loved this barn. We would go with Greatgranny to milk her cow Pet along with Fatso the long haired cat and Sandy the collie. The smells and sounds are as close to me now as they were that many years ago.
Day 15 of the 30 Day Challenge brings me to some fruit on this very early Monday morning. I started this one a while back but just couldn't finish and this morning I sat looking at it and decided to finish. Please the camera exposure. Can't seem to get my camera to cooperate with the light and my eye today.
