Country Barn




Size:  6x6
Media:  Acrylic on Gessoboard
Landscape

This was a photo that I found on PMP.   The orange glow is what attracted me to this subject matter. 
I was trying to loosen up on this and almost make it abstract.

Blue tea pot on a stiped plate

Size: 6x6
Genre:  Still Life
Media:  Acrylic on Gessoboard
Price $50.00

Again, using my new shadow box, casting shadows and finding a perspective that I liked.
This took some time, but this one appealed to me.  I liked the way the plate reflected onto
the tea pot, and this was surprisingly easier just on the second try.   If you are thinking of
trying to do still life paintings, I would encourage you to give it a try.

Going somewhere?

Size:  6x6
Media:  Acrylic on Gessoboard
Genre:  Still Life
Price: $50.00

Yesterday I made my Shadow Box, so I've been playing around with these little vignettes, adjusting
the lights, casting shadows, and trying different things that I have never done before.  I have my little frame, so that helps, but I did have to try to find my spot each time I checked the perspective.    I still had fun with it anyway.  Maybe I'll even get outside to do some painting this summer, too.  You never know!!
This is what I came up with today, tomorrow I will try another one.   This is really different than
painting from a photo, so a challenge, but this new shadow box is bigger (24"x24") than my little box that I was trying to use before. 14"x14"...and that really makes a difference in a good way.
