Art Challenge Interupted - Juried Show
I came to realize that the reason I haven't done an art challenge in the past is because life is too unpredictable.  I was 12 weeks into my art challenge when I unexpectedly had to have surgery.  So I haven't been able to get back into the studio and resume...

Art Challenge Week 12, Lipstick
Week 12 of my A - Z Art Challenge brings me to the letter L and I chose to paint a few Lipsticks.  The plastic lipstick cases were slick and shiny and the inside was a gleaming metal.  The painting isn't as realistic as my paintings usually are due to the c...

Art Challenge Week 11: The Letter K
Who doesn't love Ketchup?? Well, actually, Me.  No, I'm not a fan of Ketchup, I don't use it very much.  Every now and then I will put it on a cheeseburger but that's about it.  However, I did like painting Ketchup for Week 11.  "Ketchup" on the easel "Ketc...

Art Challenge Week 10: The Letter J
Week Ten already!  This week I was back in my comfort zone with the letter "J".  One of my most favorite things to paint is glass so this week "J" is for Jars.  These were jars that salsa, peanut butter and a sample jam came in.  I save jars after we have f...

Art Challenge Week 9: The Letter I
This week I concentrated on the letter I.  No, I am not confused about what begins with the letter I.  I know that ruler begins with R.  This week, I is for Inches.  Finding something that begins with the letter "I" that I felt that I could accomplish in th...

Art Challenge Week 8: The Letter H - Hats
This week the letter H is for Hats.   I had to build this painting by piecing things together which I don't really like to do.  I prefer to paint what I see for myself in real time or at least take my own photo. I can achieve more realism that way (you all ...

Art Challenge Week 7: The Letter G -
Glasses! Back to my realism style.  The glasses that I used as a model were tortoise shell on the outside but clear Lucite on the inside.  It was a fun challenge capturing the two different materials as well as the shadows and highlights.  This is an 8 x 10...

Art Challenge: Week 6 The Letter F: Flowers or Failure
For the letter F, I painted Flowers - these tulips.  But I am not thrilled with the way they came out.  I only had a short amount of time to work on them last week and I feel that they lack dimension and depth.  So instead of Flowers I'm calling this one Fa...

A-Z Art Challenge, Week 5: The Letter E
Week 5 was dedicated to the letter E. Keeping in mind that I want to challenge myself in subject and composition, as much as in weekly production, this week I chose to paint an Eye.  Actually, I started out with another subject but half way through I just w...
