Here is my latest finished painting completed last weekend. It is of one of my goddaughters (Isabella) walking the Salmonier Nature Trail with her brother.

Catching Up

It has been too long since I last posted....a lot going on....including painting....

I have several unfinished paintings all being worked on simultaneously.....
  • Rudbeckia hirta (Black-Eyed Susan, which has a brown center, not black funny enough)
  • The Grass is Greener....family Gramineae (Poaceae). I had "finished" this one and posted it....but decided (along with some painting friends) that it needed something else...well a ladybug it is! Have to add one in....
  • Concrete steps with fallen yellow/orange maple leaves (most likely Acer saccharum) on them
  • a lighthouse from Pigeon Point, California
  • rocks on a beach near Bay Roberts, with some Aseophyllum Nodosum (kelp) and a broken Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis (sea urchin) with the Aristotle's lantern showing
  • and the Arches, Utah painting (for me)....
PS - Had to get those scientific names in...lol

I also completed a painting as a gift for one of my goddaughters, who was received her first communion/confirmation last weekend. I'll post that in a separate blog.

In other painting news, we have officially formed our art group...ARTS NORTHEAST. We will be having our first show at Masonic Temple starting July 24....more details in a separate blog post. And we are in the process of confirming our second show. Very exciting and a lot of planning involved!

And in news unrelated to painting.....we have a new Shih Tzu puppy.....I'll post a pix of Taz also in another post.
