Catching up on oil painting

For the last few months, I’ve continued taking oil painting lessons.  But since the photos were on my camera instead of the IPAD, it’s taken months before I got the pictures processed enough to show off the progress.  After doing a number of chiaroscuro paintings (links below); I finally got to play with color.  First picture is a still life with white light on it.  Goal of that painting was to try and see colors in the white.  Second still life had a blue light shining on the white box.  Neither was finished, but both were a good exercise in learning how to mix colors.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
