Feeling Painty

Recently I’ve been getting my paint on.  In order to improve my rusty skills, I’ve got a lot of practicing to do.
The boys are always eager to help me paint, but since my paints aren’t washable, we use good old Crayola paints for them!

Jackson wanted to paint an American flag.  AWE!
Miller went freestyle {imagine that}DSCN2923
Then Jackson decided that he wanted to do an action painting.  Cheetahs!DSCN2926DSCN2928DSCN2935
I love, love, love the bright colors
After his brief painting Miller moved on to a cutting exercise.  I don’t mind him doing that.  It’s is great hand exercise.  But oh the itty bitty pieces!DSCN2931DSCN2930DSCN2936DSCN2939
Then he turned some itty bitty pieces into Super Man Logos.  He has such a great imagination!DSCN2940
I’ve been working on some of these.IMG_0390IMG_0391IMG_0392
As you can see I still have a lot of practicing to do.  I get to a certain point and then stop and just don’t know what to do next?  It’s something to do with shadows and depth, I think?
Things that make you go HMMMM!

  1. I love the new pics for the header! AND I was there to see them being taken.
    Now to your painting....I have always loved your painting since you were in college. I love the one you have done of my property and can't wait for you to paint for every room in my new house!!

    Love you,
