  • Santa’s Got Color

    09/21/2020 by

    I painted the sculpture of Santa that I did a while back. I was nervous about painting him, because I never did it before.

    Last week I was working on clowns. I took a photo of my friend, changed his coloring, added a bow tie and a red nose to remake him into a clown. The first painting was a failure. There were many things I liked about it, but the more I painted the worse it got. I’m… Read more

    I painted this watercolor in January. This was at the start of my zoom, in-home, studio gatherings. We wanted to paint hummingbirds. It took me a while to complete. First I painted the two birds, but they were just two birds on a page. So I painted a vine to help join them together. I… Read more
