Bus Stop- The Hollies

Bus Stop- The Hollies. 8x8 oil on gessobord. No rain in this view! This month I am participating in the Google Virtual Paintout for Tunisia! Here is a nice little bus stop on the island of Djerba Ajim in Tunisia. The gist of it is to go to google street view and find something interesting to paint. I loved the shadows on the bench and the round roofs. I changed up my paint a little for this one...ditching the Cad Yellow Light for Indian Yellow. I think my greens are improved.

Bluebonnets- Aaron Watson

Bluebonnets- Aaron Watson. 8x8 Oil on gessobord. 
Painted for the challenge this week to use a variety of brushes. I used about 6. A couple of flats, a round, a liner and even my palette knife. Good exercise. This is not even close to what I had envisioned when I started. I was thinking more of a mass of blue...a more abstract looking one. I like this one, but will probably try the abstract one next!
I found this song and it goes so perfectly I had to use it. Bluebonnets do fade have to be on the ball to drive the back roads to see them!...and they ARE en masse!

All Summer Long- Kid Rock

All Summer Long- Kid Rock. 6x6 Oil on gessobord. Painted for the challenge this week. Why did I choose that plate? It was so complicated! I like the look of the dishtowel with the watermelon. I am a dishtowel junkie! I buy all kinds of them, and this one just went so well with watermelon.
