Garden Scents



Okay, I painted these Forget-Me-Nots and Peonies for Dana Marie's Rendition Me This challenge.
This is her new challenge blog and the first challenge is entitled Garden Scents.
The painting she posted is of large and small flowers.
So I did this painting with that idea, but  used my own flowers.

Winter's Sunset Field



I enjoyed painting this for Dana Marie's Artistic Sentiments
challenge. She is one of the few artists that frequently posts
landscapes instead of still lifes, which I appreciate.
This particular landscape offered the challenge
of the purple shadows and golden light of sunset
on the bare trees, bushes and grasses.
Another beautiful Oregon landscape.
(She has introduced another challenge blog called Rendition Me This,
where the challenge is to paint in another artists style.)

Roses on Antique Linen



I originally began this painting for DPW's White on White challenge
presented by Ann Feldman. But somewhere in the process of the painting,
the muse took over ,and the white roses and white bowl took on the color you see.
I liked it better this way and decided to keep it this way.
She did allow about 15% color, but I think this exceeds that number...
