Ain't No Mountain High Enough...second attempt at the challenge. I decided there was absolutely nothing I liked about the first one I painted. The colors were dull...the composition was just so...so I wiped it off and started again. I used a editing program to bump up the color to ridiculous...to make me think about the colors differently. I like this one much better.

Ain't No Mountain High Enough- Diana Ross
6x6 Oil on gessobord. Painted for the challenge this week on Daily Paintworks. We were given a photo of mountains and challenged to make a good 6x6 composition. I decided to make one shorter than the other. But wondering if the tall one is high enough. Hahaha. As usual I didn't stop when I should have. Ended up obliterating some of the little rocks in the front that were a distraction.

Repainted the background! Like this blue much better!
Big and Chunky- Wiil I Am. 6x6 Oil on gessobord. Painted for the challenge this week. The challenge is to break down the subject into color blocks.....and try to leave it chunky. Truly is hard to do! Good exercise!
This song is from a movie...Madagascar! Super fun! I had a zumba teacher that used this song! I think I laughed as much as I exercised! Haha
Gotta listen! Click Here for the music

Bird On A Wire- Willie Nelson. 6x6 Oil on gessobord. Photo by J. Lucas Photography. I had originally intended to do this in a mosaic or fractured style..but once again I couldn't keep loose enough to pull that off. I may try it again just to see if I can do it!

Black and White- Three Dog Night. 6x6 Oil on gessobord. The challenge this week on Daily Paintworks is to find some black and white objects to paint. I scrounged around the house for awhile and finally settled on some of my tools. The brush is almost an ivory...but I thought...close enough!
I lit the still life with a regular incandescent bulb to get the gold reflections. The dark paint always wants to shine on the brush strokes. As u can tell...I am not so neat rolling up my paint tubes:).
