#100dayproject — Day 88

I painted this on a tiny 3×3 black canvas using metallic acrylic paint. The paint was still wet when I took the picture. I tried to leave outlines where the black canvas showed through just for …

#100dayproject — Day 87

A water-doodle. I have too much “empty space” (for me) above the flowers, but I’ll take some time and think about what I want there later.

#100dayproject — Day 86

I was actually trying to do a simple landscape, but the colors moved more than I wanted (I know, too much water) and the plants I panted at the bottom looked like something out of a …

#100dayproject — Day 85

Back to water-doodles! I love them, even when they turn out kind of wonky. They are truly great for meditation. No thoughts. No stress. Just clearing the old gray matter of any problems from the day.…

#100dayproject — Day 84

My third ever acrylic painting! So, I did it quickly. Freehanded. A mistake, but as a writer, I’m not much for plotting there either. So, I screwed up the tabletop under the plant and couldn’t fix …

#100dayproject — Day 83

I know it looks like a crayon drawing. But I had fun. I need different pinks and I don’t have pastel colors for the background or highlights, but those are on order and I will try …

#100dayproject — Day 81

I saw a painting on Pinterest that inspired this. I began with straight watercolor. I liked the thin clouds in the sky. The grass was boring. So, I followed with a rub of soft pastel yellow-green …

#100dayproject — Day 80

I still love watercolors! I like making these postcards to mail out to friends and family.

Another quick card done in soft pastels, my favorite new medium. So …

#100dayproject — Day 79

This painting’s a case of not knowing when to throw in the towel. LOL

I love pastels!! So fun and fast. Such intense, soft colors.

#100dayproject — Day 78

My first portrait! I know, I’ll never be a “realistic” painter. #1 — I don’t have the patience or time for detail. “#2 — I really do love this style of art. For this, I used …
