Drift Away- The Rolling Stones

Drift Away- The Rolling Stones. 6x6 Oil on Gessobord
Done for the challenge this week on DPW....water. The inspiration for this painting comes from the Oklahoma River Walk. We had plenty of time to watch the ducks drift by while eating our dinner on the water. It was a beautiful evening. I have been wanting to paint this one for a couple months and finally got around to it. Thanks for the challenge Carol! The water didn't turn out the first I wiped it off and started again. The first version was dark and I didn't like the actual I spiced it up! Of course!

Can't Touch This(tle) 1 thru 4- MC Hammer

Can't Touch This(tle)- MC Hammer. Four separate 5x7 canvas panels. The challenge this week on DPW is to paint an object four times. The first one with as much detail as you want and then each panel should get less detail and be rougher until the last one is barely recognizable. I couldn't find anything to paint that inspired me in my hotel room..until I went on a walk and found this wonderful purple thistle! Which is very prickly! But, close up they are so delicate!Well....the first one (upper left) took me about 30 minutes...the last one (lower right) took about 5 minutes. I think I like the last one the best!
