Last Painting of 2018

Happy New Year! Since my last post, the holidays have come and gone. From Thanksgiving on, every day has been filled with “to do” lists, places to be and of course, enjoying the holidays spent in the company of friends and family. I pray that you all had a wonderful holiday season and look forward to beginning the New Year of 2019.

I managed to get one last painting in for the year – – a small, 9″ x 12″ watercolor portrait of a friends daughter. It has been far too long since I’ve painted something other than a still life or landscape, so it felt good to get back into painting people. The colors reflect the temperature, time of day and hopefully, mood.

Below is from my sketchbook:

Final painting, “Evie”

I completed quite a few paintings this year, some that turned out well and others I just chock up to a learning experience. I narrowed down my favorites to 6 paintings:May 2019 keep you healthy, happy and give you all a prosperous new year!

    1. Thank you Amber and happy New Year! I love seeing your paintings as well and am impressed with the many you get done. Like all artists, I am always striving for each new painting to get better and more dramatic. I keep staring at this last one wondering if I’ve missed something- maybe we all do that, I don’t know. I’m looking forward to seeing your paintings this year😊🎨
