Alaska Fishing

This is a thank you painting I did for my Dad to give to the people he visited in Alaska.
They had a wonderful time fishing, hiking... and being men.
7x10 inches, watercolor

what's new?


I just wanted to repost these images since I touched them up. Sharpened some of the areas, adjusted some of the angles... the colors are closer to the actual paintings too.
 I drop them off at Fein Art Gallery tomorrow.

We did a museum tour last week. (My two sons and I)
Went to the Barnes Foundation (yes, we saw the movie The Art of the Steal) in Philladelphia and went to see the Wyeths work at the Brandywine museum in Chadds Ford, and then to DC to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit at the Museum of American Art.
Take the docent tour at the Barnes if you go before the collection moves. An amazing amount of art... go through it twice to see what you missed the first time.
Make sure you have plenty of time to go through the Brandywine Musem (we could have spent more than the two hours we had).
And just go ahead and spend a week in DC at all the museums. We had one day and it was painful to leave without seeing more. And the Rockwell exhibit... made us smile, a nice way to end our tour. Thanks to Speilburg and Lucas for sharing their collections.
Nice to watch the boys critique and enjoy all the art we saw.
Now getting ready for back to school for the boys, my art classes and commissions, coffee with my husband, walking the dog...

Baba's Pails

This 7x10 inch Baba is done in pastels.
I enjoyed playing with the colors, so many to choose from.
The actual painting has much brighter colors.
I am still not able to photograph and adjust the colors of my pastels.
I will try to photograph again outside to see if it makes a difference.
