Tombstone Shadow- Creedence Clearwater Revival

Tombstone Shadow- Creedence Clearwater Revival. 6x6 Oil on gessobord. I painted this for the challenge this week on Daily Paintworks. The challenge is to pick an object and then light it with two or more colored light sources. My husband and I visited a museum in Abilene, Texas a couple of weeks ago and I took some photos of this huge pile of faux bison skulls...I thought the colors and shadows were intriguing. What a coincidence that just a few weeks I had a photo reference to paint for the challenge.

Sweet Disposition- The Temper Trap

Sweet Disposition- The Temper Trap. 8x8 Oil on gessobord. Painted for the challenge this week. I decided to paint another one of my daughter's puppy she lost a few weeks ago. The first one I painted just turned out all white...since he was a little white dog...and it is okay..but I wanted one with more color, so this was a great exercise for me to experiment.

Emotional Rescue- Rolling Stones

Emotional Rescue- Rolling Stones. 6x6 on cradled 2" board. I took this photo a few years ago when my husband and I went down to the river in North Dakota to fish. It was such a nice warm day and the river was just lazily flowing along....taking all my worries with it! I can almost smell the water and the wet sand.
