San Francisco

I thought Oh Geez another building… DSDF Blog...But then I remembered the time that Susan and I went to Asilomar for a Quilting convention and then went to San Fran for a few days of “Down time”. We did such a Gadabout, the Warf, Coit Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge, and then Muir Woods. So I decided to incorporate all that into this painting. I am not sure of the painting but “memory lane” was GREAT!

I have never successfully done a painting of Matt my oldest son. I think I did much better this time. Of course finding a Photo of him was the hard part. Matt doesn’t like to have pictures taken so I had to go back to 2004 to find this one!

James and Austin

Austin was born early and only weighed 4lbs 15oz. While in the NICU the nursing staff taught James how to feed, swaddle and burp Austin. James is going to be a wonderful father. I took a photo of James learning how to burp Austin. So I thought I would try my hand at painting it.

Three Turnips

Winter vegetables are so good. Nothing like Turnips and they are kind of pretty too!

Jefferson Memorial at Night

I decided to attempt the challenge from the Different Strokes for Different Folks blog. I usually do not paint buildings but I figured why not? I am pretty happy with the result.

Just getting started!

I am just getting started at this Blog thing so bear with me.
