Sun Flowers and Vase ala Vincent Van Gough

Well I did procrastinate and did not get this done until the eleventh hour. The post for Following the Masters was due today. I really have a hard time with putting that much paint on the canvas. I have tried this a few times before, check the archives! I like the bright colors and found changing up the direction of the brush strokes, well it did not come naturally to me! but here it is. I posted to late to get it on the web challenge but at least I am trying. :-)

This months Virtual Paintout challenge is of Nova Scotia, Canada. I love the Google street gadabout, to find interesting images! This is of St. Mary's Cathedral and the Old Burial Grounds on Barrington St in Halifax.

Airport Travelers

This is my submission for the current DSDF challenge! I can't say I ever tried to draw or paint from this "looking down on" perspective before. Looking at the negative spaces was the saving grace for me, that way I at least got close to the ball park!

San Francisco Roof Tops

This was going to be my submission for the last DSDF challenge, but work got in the way of my fun and I didn't get it done on time. But I did persevere and finish it.
