Feb 22, 2015 Cascading Water painting

I am following this intermediate class of Jerry Yarnell. It's an almost 3 hrs lesson but took me almost 8 hours to finish this painting. I didn't like the brown rocks painted on the lesson and changed it to grey-ish moss rocks instead.

This painting is done on 18x24 inches of stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

Reminders of the Past, Feb 15, 2015

It took me a while to gather my courage to paint this old style Victorian house that is abandoned. This painting is called "Reminders of the past", lesson on TV by Jerry yarnell. It's a more intermediate lesson and I wasn't sure I could do it.
But, slowly following his lesson, I was able to finish.

This painting is done on 16x20 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

Feb 13, 2015 Deer Latch Hook Rug

I purchased this latch hook kit back on January 7, 2015 because it reminded me what I used to make when I was growing up. This one has 15 colors and I love deer and mountain behind it, so I decided to re-learn and made this.

It took me 5 weeks to make this and it turns out beautiful.
The size is 20x27 inches.

Raccoon, Feb 8, 2015

I fell in love with this raccoon picture from Brenda Harris' book and one of the reason I got the book. But took me a while to get out of my comfort zone and painted this. Finally, I decided to do it. I started sketching yesterday and painted the background and finally finished it today.

This Raccoon is painted on 16x20 canvas panel using acrylic paints.

Feb 3, 2015 Hummingbird painting

I've always love birds and hummingbird is just amazing. I even have hummingbird feeders. Somehow few years back, there were a lot of them coming to my backyard, but now they came fewer and fewer.

Anyways, this is my second time painting hummingbird. The first one was at painting class. This one was based on Jerry yarnell's lesson.

This painting is done on 16x20 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

Grist Mill painting, February 1, 2015

I've always loved the grist mill buildings. Something about the water wheel around the building and the history of it is very interesting.

Maybe someday I can see working grist mill, grinding grain into flour in person, if such place still exists.

Anyway, I paint this based on the book by Brenda Harris. I painted this on 12x16 inches canvas panel, using acrylic paints.
