Looks like it’s show and tell day, I may have gotten carried away…
This is a painting I started around the same time I did the other Golden Gate Bridge painting, I still haven’t finished it. It’s almost done, but you will see I have 5 more cars to paint in and the road. I’ve found that cars are fun to paint, who knew? You can get parts of the car way off and they simply look like a different style of car. This one is from a picture I took when we were leaving SF going north up 101, so those are the hills of the Marin Headlands that you can see.
This here below is a section of the Maine beach scene I’m working on right now. I have the background filled in with the first pass of paint all the way around the figures. Now I am putting the 8 kids together. Yesterday I painted in the bathing suits on 4 of them. Today I will work on the other 4 and them give them all skin. The colors are lovely.
And for show and tell, here are 2 of my 3 musicians. Sammy with his jazz band and Miss Winnie on our synthesizer. She loves to compose. They have a fantastic teacher. Sammy is practicing the piano right now as I write this. He practices every morning starting at about 5:45 and sometimes wakes up our poor neighbors.
They all love music. Winnie’s hope is to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston someday. She has the right teacher.
For more randomness, here are my cute sisters. My mom organized us all for a cooking class a few summers ago. I look different in every picture taken of me…I’m on the far right wearing stripes.
And that’s it for show and tell today. I hope you have a great day! It’s beautiful here in Boise right now, spring is the best time of year.
