Midday, Guanajuato 22"x28"

This is from a photograph I took while on a day trip to the city of Guanajuato in central Mexico while on a weeklong painting trip to San Miguel a couple of years ago. I liked the activity in the photo so I decided to paint the scene.

Louie the Lobster

Louie was the result of a day of diving for some friends of my daughter...the result was some very good lobster and scallops. So good! Anyway, as Louie was languishing, I thought he should be painted.

"Sol" 6"x6"

For our August Girls Just Wanna Paint Challenge, the topic was simply, (or not so simply) the sun. I wasn't sure what approach to use or how I wished to portray, or at least indicate the I just sat at my easel and started was fun. Very different from how I have been approaching subject matter where I often have something sitting in front of me to reference. Nice to take a different direction sometimes.
