New Raven Painting

Title: Spring Sky
Size: 10 x 10 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Stretched canvas

I finished this one more quickly than I thought. I spent about a couple of hours using my airbrush for the background. It's always messy doing that, but fun because this is usually the only part that is close to abstract art for me.

The model is one of the raven pair I took pictures of at the nearby beach. I want to paint the pair on a larger canvas sometime in the near future. This painting is more like a study for that larger one.

Finally A Week Off

Title: Over the Mountains
Size: 11 x 14 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Hardboard

I finally have a week off! My big job will be done in just a couple of more weeks, and then my husband and I will be going to visit his family for a week.

Last month was the annual San Mateo Country Fair. My entries "Eyes of Billy" won the best of show in the oils/acrylics paintings division, "Frog Prince" won the first place in the miniatures, and "Over the Mountains" won the first place in the Birds class in the oils/acrylics division.

I have just started another raven painting, hoping to finish it over the weekend. Will post it when it's done.

Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone!
