May 31, 2015 Reminders of the Past painting

This is my third lesson I did on Jerry Yarnell online school.
It's called "Reminders of the Past" on 16x20 inches stretched canvas.
It's using acrylic paints.

I love this lesson because I love old weathered woods and how simple yet serene the background is.

May 31, 2015 Oriental Butterfly Cross Stitch

I wanted to learn how to make cross stitch panel. So on May 3rd, 2015, I purchased a very beginner 3inchx3inch owl cross stitch kit.
I also purchased a 10x10 inches "oriental butterfly" kit and decided to make that as a gift. After learning the owl for few days, I decided to abandon that and started the butterfly one.

Took me 18 days to finish this panel and gave this for a birthday gift.
It was fun but such a time-consuming project since I wanted to finish it quickly.

May 17, 2015 City Nightscape painting

This is my second Yarnell Online school class that I took. It's called Parade of lights, but to me it's just a city nightscape.

I really love painting this because I was able to create so many details and shaped of each buildings that I want. kind of creating my own "city".

This painting is done on 15x30 inches stretched cotton canvas and using acrylic paints.

May 9, 2015 Multnomah Falls painting

Ever since I started painting a year ago, I wanted to paint multnomah falls, the beautiful falls in Oregon.
I then looked at the classes around but none was pretty enough for my taste.

Then I joined Yarnell Online school and finally painted this with a help of google image for reference also. I learned a lot, including how to make my painting looks misty and water splatting using toothbrush.

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