The Rooster is done

Actually, it has been done for a while but I have been busy with other things. The painting hasn't been scanned yet. Once it is scanned, the lines won't be bowed. The next two paintings will be miniatures for the two miniature shows coming up. They are the Seaside show and the Parklane Gallery show. They will both be on-line. I really like that because you can see the complete show and you can see what sells.
It might snow here tomorrow. That is really rare. I have covered my Pony tail palm and we will cover other plants tomorrow. We have alot of tropical plants. If it snows, you can be sure that I will be out in it with my American Eskimo Frosty. He has his winter coat (very thick) and I am excited to see what he does.

My Granddaughter Ashleigh's drawings

I just added two of Ashleigh's drawings to my Zibbet shop. She has been selling her dog drawings lately. She is busy now working and going to college so I told her that I would help her out. I am so happy that she is following in my footsteps. Here are two of her drawings. "Lisa" and "Westie".

Coming Along.

I painted on this yesterday while everyone else was watching the Super Bowl. The fruit at the bottom will be persimmons. I was afraid that it would look too much like my Sweet Persimmons painting but it doesn't. I don't have a bowl in this and the rooster is different. I sold the sweet Persimmons right away so maybe this one will be grabbed up too. I put some Prismacolor pencil over the watercolor in a few places to punch up the color. It works! The size is 17.5" x 23.5".It will be placed in a 24 x 30 mat.
A water pipe broke in our house today and flooded our guestroom and our water heater went out so today hasn't been a good day. Amazing how you miss running water when you don't have it. I brought in some ice cold water from the pool to soak the dishes. Hopefully, things will be back to normal soon.

A Little More Done On The Rooster

I didn't get to paint today because I was trying to print some giclees on my old dieing R1800 Epsom printer. I have used that printer so much and now it is telling me it is tired. It won't take my new heavier paper. Arches quit making  the paper that I was using. I have a feeling that a new printer will be in my future.

I wanted to show you the progress that I have made on the rooster. I don't have the luxury of painting every day so it is going slow. I love painting my kooky roosters. I make up alot as I go along. They are statues not real roosters.

Well, here it is. Oh oh, it looks too dark. Sorry.
