My favorite earings (9"x 6")

I like wearing them, and the way they look, so I thought I should paint them. I enjoyed working on the loops the most. A good day of practice.

Walnut (8"x6")

When I first started painting it, my walnut looked more like a brain. But now, I'm proud of myself that I finished it within one day. I just realized that I should practice more with smaller projects like this one. It takes less time and there are not as many things I can mess up...instant gratification.

End of the year portrait swap ( 8"x 10")

Somehow I managed to delete my last post, so I guess I will do it again. This is my entry for the end of the year portrait swap. I didn't know who the person was. It was exiting to participate but because I am new to portraits (my second) it was challenging. I also lost all the great comments and words of encouragement from another artists when I deleted the post and that is what I'm really sad about. You can view all the portraits on you tube too, just click part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4.
