My husband, Jim, raises lots of animals on our small farm. He has rabbits, goats, a calf, miniature horses, pigeons and sheep. Sheep are calm and mostly nice. The rams will, however, often but you if he thinks you're doing something he doesn't like. The mom, though are sweet and very good mothers.
Baby goats sometimes struggle at birth and we sometimes keep them in a box in our kitchen in the winter. Baby lambs are much stronger and within minutes are bouncing around. And, they are so CUTE!
Thank you for following along on this, my fourth 30 paintings in 30 days challenge and I hope you have enjoyed the "scenes from my front door". Friday, Oct. 3, 4-8 p.m. is an opening reception and all 30 paintings will be on display. If I painted something of yours and you would like to purchase it, you can take 10% off that night. Please stop by and enjoy some food, fun and friends.
I'm not sure if it's vintage or antique, but I do know it's beautiful.
But it's also red. All red. Everything is red.
And that's really hard to show a shape or features if everything is one color.
I mixed up a half a dozen or more of reds so I could get some shape and dimension.
Even the engine is red.
Good thing the tires are black.
Day 27. The challenge is almost over. Friday, Oct. 3, 4-8 p.m. at River Run Gallery, 449 Main St., Carrollton, KY., I'm having an artist reception featuring all 30 paintings. There will be some light refreshments, friends and hopefully you. Please stop in.
Painting these beauties has been lots of fun. I've seen them in so many different ways.
Learning to paint carnations has been challenging, but not as challenging as trying to get internet in my gallery. I've spent a fair amount of time lately trying to get internet in the gallery and I still don't have it. So, I'm frustrated.
But, the best thing about painting is you get so immersed, you forget all about your frustrations, aggravations and all else that weighs you down.
I'm a nature artist and I love to paint old barns, rivers and lakes, trees and fence rows. I work almost daily trying to improve my art and all that entails. I try to learn all I can from others and from the earth itself by being aware of all God has created and its beauty.
