I went through all my paintings and found only two that I don't think I've posted before and both of these were done in the eighties. The first one is appropriate for Christmas because I copied it from a Christmas card. It is one of the earliest I ever did and it hung in the corner of the living room where my mother and father-in-law lived in Llandudno until Dad passed away in 2002. Like most of my paintings it is not very large -- about the size of a post card.
A Scottish Thistle.
I can't believe it is so long ago since I did these. I was only just starting out in my painting, with no lessons or tutor. Back then I spent many long hours painting. I still like to paint but find it hard on my hands and eyes. So now I mostly use Prisma Color pencils which can actually produce an almost water color look.
This is the only drawing I did while we were in Kauai, although I took all my painting and drawing kit with me.
A Dog at the Beach
I have to admit that I did a little color enhancement with the computer on this. It really came out from the new scanner looking a little anemic. Got to make some adjustments.
I have done very little painting in the last few months. Seems like the last few months have been especially busy. When the opthamologist gives me the OK to have my other cataract taken out maybe I will be more inclined to get back to it. Certainly I hope to do more in the NEW YEAR.
In the mean time may I wish you, all my blogging friends, a very blessed Christmas or a Happy Hanukkah.
