Apple squared

After watching the demo by Karen Werner at the Inland Empire Art Association March meeting, I decided to try it; painting small still life and concentrate on color and brush stroke. It made me to slow down and really thinking about the color on each stroke.

Between you and me

Senior citizens of Na Xi minority group in Li Jiang, China usually come outside and enjoy the afternoon sun. They all dressed in their costume and this scene attracts a lot of the tourists around the world. Unfortunately I was there on a rainy day and miss the scene. The painting was done from a photo.

Love on first sight

Cat Austin knows where the warm sunlight hits and can stay there for hours. I had no problem getting a great shot with my camera.
