Three Hundred and Sixty-Five!

OMG, I finished and with 2 hours to spare! I finished the revised challenge that is, 365 images in 3 years time! We’ll it is the last post of the challenge and as I was scrambling to finish up the images I did have the opportunity to finish a couple pieces I felt really strongly about, this one included. It completed my panel piece which I will post in full at a later time. I love the critters in contrast with the designs on the eggs. I realize the two aspects don’t blend well but I love the juxtaposition. These little critters were initially born from  this challenge so it seemed fitting to end with a group of them. Also, as Easter is only a few days away why not celebrate! I’ll be doing a recap post this week so I won’t babble on here but always Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Sixty-Four!

The pattern and overlay really interested me after I did the first iteration of this image. This is a second version which offers its own special qualities. I really enjoy the color, it seems so soft and quiet which reminds me of the mood every day I see this. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Sixty!

I’ve been looking at windows recently, particularly those of old warehouses near my work. They always seem interesting at night/early morning because they are illuminated but not evenly. They are aged and show wear. Even the color that emits though the panes of glass changes from panel to panel. The whole image has nice a quiet vibe to it. It’s not nearly as dark as it should be but that is somewhat hard for me still. I’ll get there eventually. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Eight!

Tackled this again, I wanted to integrate it into an image with multiple panels. I know it is very similar to the others but none are the same. Some of the color combos within this image are really inspiring. I am looking forward to utilizing them in future works. When I work with watercolors I always find it hard to make certain colors but these type of images are opening up more and more colors every time. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Seven!

Easter is right around the corner and with it comes Easter Eggs! The simplicity of this image is nice. The light washes on the egg really work well with the contrast of high impact color in the back ground. The background of this image is one of my favorites. It’s refreshing painting in this fashion and without boundaries or rules. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Forty-Eight!

The other day when I pulled into work I looked across the parking lot and there was this warehouse window that was so interesting to look at. I found myself sitting there just staring at it for quite sometime. The light that was shining through was only illuminating sparatic panes which appeared to be a variation of colors. When I tried to photograph it is looked like a black smudge. This image is based on an moment that now resides in my mind as a memory. I really enjoy this and know this is not the last of this type of image. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Forty-Seven!

OK, I finally painted a human that doesn’t make me want to tear my eyeballs out. Major success story here! As usual her head is way too large for her body but she is old and sometimes old people have really big facial features you know ears, noses and so on. For some reason I was interested in painting a woman with layers of coats but on route to that image I kind of stumbled on this elderly lady hunched over her cane and felt inspired. Enjoy and see you next time.
