Mt. Fujiyama Japan in the Mist

Mt. Fujiyama Japan Mist  

Weekend painting challenge at WetCanvas, hosted by a lovely lady named Dewi, who just came back from her trip.   I loved the light in this, and haven't done a landscape for a while. This is a quick study maybe 45min or less...  Used watercolor pencils and some pastels on 9x12 paper.  Enjoy!!  :)


Butterfly On Queen Ann Lace Flower

This was done for a  May Monthly Challenge in the Floral Forum at WetCanvas.   We were asked to paint Butterflies on Flowers.  I chose this beautiful blue/black iridescent one, on a Queen Ann's Lace Flower.  These Butterflies, are all over the place here right now.  Hope you enjoy!!

 The Butterflies are Back
 Painted with Heavy Body Acrylics, Open Acrylics and Iridescent Acrylic Inks, Brushes, and Palette knives for the flower. Abstract background On 5"x7" Canvas.
Just a quick update......I've been missing here for a few months due to some Health issues. Have missed this so much, and will be posting here more in the weeks to come.  Thank you for checking in to those of you who  have.  Much appreciated.
I've got a couple drawings and a study I'm going to be posting today......can't wait for your thoughts.....

Red my favorite color, I use a lot of it in my paintings.  The background was done with my knives, gave it lots of texture.

Sweetheart Roses

Acrylic 4"x6" on Canvas

Loved the colors of these Roses, just the kind to bring big smiles from most women. This is Day 16 in the 30 in 30 Challenge half way through the month.  This painting was done very quickly, wanted to make the deadline. It's more or less a study for a larger painting. It will be part of my Petite Pearls collection.  Will look at it more tomorrow. Thanks for viewing.......

A Simple Pear

Acrylic 5"x7" on Canvas

This one was done trying out some textures and colors.  I like how it evolved.  
We are into day15 and I'm behind, but, will keep going and see where I get with these.  I'm hoping by day 30 that a daily painting will be  a snap for me.  :)
