Christmas in July

I’ve had this reference photo marked to paint for quite a while. There’s something charmingly “bad hair day” about this cactus. The painting had a pretty bad ugly middle phase but I kept going and made it through to the other side. Whew!

(A) B C D E

I’m doing a Paint-along on Instagram hosted by some artists I follow, using the letters of the alphabet as prompts each week. I joined in a little late so I missed “A”, but here are my paintings for “B” - “E”. I’m planning to try to do all the paintings in 5x7 inch format so at the end I’ll have 26 paintings to donate for Art4Shelter’s 2021 sale. Or 25, if I don’t go back and do “A” ;)

B is for Bermuda

C is for Cornfield

D is for Duck

E is for Eucalyptus (from reference photo by Wanda Comrie)

Anniversary Flowers

These flowers were not for MY anniversary, but that’s what the reference photo was titled and I liked the sound of it. Originally the grapes were purple but they looked too turd-like in my painting so I changed them to green. ;)
