Pilates Bunny

4 x 4 inches, Oil on Gessoboard - Sold

I've been exercising lately.  My hope is to get some flexibility and muscle strength.  I've given up on loosing weight...but enough about that because today, I want to focus on the Easter Bunny.   Children really enjoy the special talents of the Easter bunny.  How he comes up with all kinds of hiding places for Easter Baskets and eggs.   I have wonderful memories of said activities stretching (pun intended) from my childhood to watching my granddaughter. 

So in honor of the yearly work of the Easter Bunny and my ever increasing need of exercise, I created Palates Bunny.  Why not combine the two?

Thinking more about the Easter Bunny, I wonder why he stops hiding eggs when the youngest child gets wise to him.  The last Easter Egg hunt I had was in 2011, when the Easter Bunny asked this grandma to hide all the freshly dyed eggs.  I didn't count or keep track of their location.  We ended thinking all were found but, my dog Cooper found the last egg about a week later.

I'll be enjoying the other side of Easter also.  Easter Sunday at Church.

Piglet Oil Painting, "Hay Maze" by Brande Arno

Every time I see her latest collection on YouTube, I am awestruck at how pure the background color is.  So I wanted to try my hand at upping background color value in my work.   Below is how I started:
Hay Maze Start Here, I establish the main layout and gesture of this piglet's face.  I'm striving for something that looks painterly, yet would bring a smile to the face of the viewer, so this stage is important.  Also, color values on the pig are being set. Hay Maze about halfway This is where I put that rich background color in.  Notice some neutral colors in with the bright.  I wouldn't want all bright green here as it would be like all caps when texting.  I'll re-post the final Hay Maze below:

Lots of changes from the halfway point,  I added shadows in the hay and a little here and there.  …

Bloomfield Shack in September

I've painted this many times and every time I drive by the actual shack, I have to stop and look/take more pictures to work from.  It's hard to admit that one smaller shack could inspire me so much.
