Lemon in 20 minutes :D

I actually painted this in 20 minutes. It's on cardstock 4 1/2" x 6" and I primed it with Gesso. I have been priming my canvas and paper with White Latex because I read in a book a long time ago that White Latex could substitute for Gesso. I don't believe it after painting on something primed with Gesso. The paint actually flowed on the Gesso. Up til now it has felt like it has been dragged off the brush. I'll never use White Latex again. Learn something new every day I guess.

Rufus Hummingbird

Male Rufus Hummingbirds are so beautiful. The hummingbirds come through Ketchikan in Spring and bring some needed color with them.

For The Virtual Paintout Blogspot

I had a very hard time using Google maps with the little yellow personoid thingy. When I finally found a building I stopped.

My Quick Pears that took two Days

One Pear

Two Pear

I checked this book out of the library. I learned a bunch of stuff I didn't know, about acrylics. Maybe I'll do better. HAH! oh well I'll keep practicing.

Took a break from My "Quick" Pears (only been 2 days now)

Ketchikan is a town of wooden stair streets :D.

This barge was being loaded with scrap metal. An old tour bus had a piling smashed through the middle of it. I thought it
was funny.
