Well hello! (If anyone reads this! Who knows!) My last post was April 2021, at which time I was doing an online art class. It went.. ok. I discovered I do not like to paint with acrylics on a wood panel. Perhaps I was not doing it right! Eh. It’s ok not to like it.
Here we are in the middle (toward the end?) of the Omicron portion of the global pandemic. And I am once again painting every day in January.
Although I’ve still got a few days to go, here are some horses I painted this month. I am new to painting horses. It went pretty well!
And here are some portraits I painted this month. The ones on the right are definitely more successful than the ones on the left.
And here are some landscapes I painted this month. I am new to landscape painting, and used free reference photos from unsplash.com. It went pretty well with the sunlight and atmospheric perspective and a cute little (lopsided) car:
Are you doing any painting projects in 2022? Let me know so I can check them out! :D
Thanks for dropping by! I can be found on instagram at cindydauer.
It’s 2020. Already February, in fact. I’ve actually had about a week trying to get my blog working, probably due to a problem with an update or something. I’m not sure what fixed it, to be honest!
The world is crazy but I am going to try to do lots of painting this year. I have started the last 3 years or so with lots of painting in January, and not much after. This time, I didn’t do any in January, but plan to do much more for the rest of the year.
How about you, got plans for 2020? Thanks for stopping by!
Starting this weekend and running September 8-15, 2019, I am co-hosting an online art auction in support of abortion rights. Most of the art was made by the organizers, though a few of our friends have donated some pieces. Looking is free! More information here: https://noapologiesartauction.org/
(The Dolores Huerta – right side, flower background, and the tiny houses in the middle (plus the painting at the top of this post) are mine. The other pieces are from other artists!)
