My new entry for Monday Art Day!

"The Paint Mines"

Last week's theme for Monday Art Day was "desert".  I chose to do a muted drawing of the Paint Mines in Colorado that I visited years ago.  It's a beautiful place with colors of yellow ochre, pinks, purples, and red contrasted with a chalky white.  I don't know if it's possible to go there now because it was on private land back in the early 1990's.  It's definitely worth a visit.

More progress on the Christmas painting-Yay!



More work on the Christmas painting. I'm trying to bring each vignette to the same stage. If you look closely at the one with Mary, Joseph, and Jesus in the background you'll see angels. I changed the view of the kitty. Redrew Gracie. She was too big for her age in the photo I'm using. Darkened the Christmas tree scene background. Just noticed a mistake I need to fix!  Ha ha!  So much more to do!!!! It's a very dark painting right now but that will really change.
