I WON!


Just received notice from Rachel that I won one of her paintings!!! WOW!! I am excited as I rarely win, so my luck has changed and in such a wonderful way!!! This morning, I went Plein Air painting with our local guild group ---- not quite so lucky as I am still having trouble with varying my greens and contrasts. However, I had a marvelous time, the weather was delightful and I to think - I almost didn't go thinking it would be too cold (68). After I returned home, I started a still life and used only C.Red Light, UltraM Blue, Alizarin Crimson and White. Needless to say it challenged me as I tried to duplicate exact colors.... I am going to repeat the exercise again and again and again until it becomes second nature to mix correctly. In the meantime, I am posting a painting I did of a tea set my brother brought back from Nam. I call it "Zen Moment". Have an enjoyable night. Honor

I love the contrast in these last two posts. Your work is very pleasing and I can almost smell the bell peppers from your previous post and anticipate the taste of the tea in this one. And congratulations on winning the painting!

Joan, As I am still new at this, I just discovered your comment. Thank you. I visited your site and love your work. Also my husband and I are big band fans and the Jazz society here in Brevard is doing a tribute to Stan Kenton on Sunday. I am looking forward to it as I am just now starting to recover from my cold.
