Remember... "Future Golf Course" ?

Remember "Future Golf Course"? Here it is, with a few more touches of the brush, paper towel, pencils, fingers..... you know, painting tools! Oh yes, paint too.

The painting may be finished, but this golf course needs a little work. I don't see many flag sticks! Do you see any? I think I see one, hmmm..... maybe not...

"Going Home" -Sold

This piece looks to me like someone, headed home after some dreary days on the road.
I got to a point and said "Stop" so I stopped.

This will be in the gallery show this Friday along with six other pieces. They are all 8"x6" aquamedia on paper mounted on a gallery wrap canvas. I'll have to get some photos from the opening to show you all later!

"Little Yellow- Apple 31" -Sold

Yellow, a yellow apple. Mmmm, looks so good, I love the taste of a good yellow apple, so sweet.

This apple had the same type of beginnings that #30 had, a black and white acrylic underpainting.  : }

Happy Birthday to my good, good friend Lynn! Sometimes, when I'm painting and having so much fun, I remember the times sitting for your two daughters and we painted! So much fun! What was I thinking, studying engineering? I should have been in art school then! But then, I would have never met you and your wonderful family!!  Happy Birthday!

"Apple #30" -Sold

Apple #30. Oil on a 6"x6" canvas panel. It has been over a month since I've used oil paint. Still like it!

Something a little different with this one, well, this is the first of six, before I put down the color, I did a quick painting with acrylic in black and white as the underpainting. Here is what this one looked like before the color.
It history now, kind of, it's really still there, it's underneath the color..... hmmm..

"Sharing Secrets"

Sharing secrets can be a good move. Aunt Rose is sharing her biscotti recipe with Randy and I.  My golf buddies and I share golf secrets. My artist buddies and I share secrets all of the time! That's how we do it!

This gnat is sharing my wine with me! Wait! I don't want to share my wine with that gnat. Some things are not meant to be shared!

Fun Friday! Have a drink, but don't drink and drive!! Unless your drinking water, but even if, be careful!! Have a great weekend  : )

"Go Red" -Sold

Did this painting Sept 11th. Well, finished it Sept 11th.

Today, I found the perfect title for this piece, "Go Red".   I received an email from The American Heart Association, Go Red for women, the message inspired this title.

Wear red proudly for our hearts ladies!! "Celebrate Wear Red Day any day!!"

I love red...

Take care of your heart, every day.....   : )
from my heart, to yours

"Future Golf Course"

Not sure if this one is quite finished yet, but I thought I would post it and maybe get some feed back from someone, anyone... : )   It can be a lonely job being an artist/painter. How do you know when to stop... hmmm... one suggestion I had last month was 90%, then let the viewer finish the image with their imagination. I like that.

This could be a golf course some place in this world. It could be my job to find it!! Can you tell I've played a little golf this week? It's fresh on my mind!

Yes, it's fun Friday. It's been fun and it's not over yet! Hope you too are having fun.

"Birthday Bouquet" -Sold

Happy Birthday Everyone!! Doesn't this look like a nice "Birthday Bouquet"?

Call me "Bobette", this is in the Bob Burridge spirit! Maybe the JanettMarie spirit is there too, but I just had to do a flower bouquet!

Looks like I better keep practicing!!

"Apple #28" -Sold #28

Here it is, another apple! Wait, is that what I said last time?

This apple is two of the three, that I painting on Thursday, last week. The fun, fun, fun painting.
We've been out of town for the Labor Day weekend and I haven't had time to post, so better late than no painting at all. For sure # 29 will be posted tomorrow... Oh, let me post it now!!
"Apple #29"

These, like Number 27 are 10"x10" on paper. I am liking this painting on paper more and more!

Hopefully, I have some time to paint this week, my calender is looking pretty busy with, oh you know, things that need to get done....  like paper work.

"Apple Number 27"

The suspense of when the next apple will be painted... here it is "Apple Number 27".
Yes, the title may be a little weak, but it is subject to change!

This looks like a Red Delicious to me. I must subconsciously like the shape of the red delicious!
Whew, whew!!

This is 10x10 inches as opposed to the 6x6's I've been doing. It's acrylic, and Derwent Inktense watersoluble pencils on gessoed watercolor paper! Fun, fun, fun!
