Beach Rocks

These are some river rocks that I picked up from a beach in Oregon. I painted them per a request of one of my daughters. This is the first time I ever used acrylics. I love how they dry so quickly on the rock but I hate how quickly it dries on my palette.

I Break for Tea

This is this week's challenge for DPW we were supposed to paint our favorite mug. Since no photo was supplied I took my stuff outside into the sun and set up my own composition. I had never done that before! I enjoyed playing around with the objects. I then took a photo and printed it off and begun to paint. I LOVE tea and this is one of my favorites, Peachberry Jasmine Sutra which has a lovely color and smell. The big mug allows me to stick my face in it and smell it as well as taste it.

I'm Sill in Love With You

This was for the DPW Challenge. The challenge was to get the values correct. We were given a black and white photo and told to paint it then check our own painting in black and white to see if we got it right. I think I got the values pretty close .
