A new 18x24 in. oil

Oh those greens!! Carla, Joan , Teresa, and Leslie almost hidden,plein air afternoon.

At the Ranch
Fleeting shadows!
'King of the Roost'.oil/canvas 18"x24"
I just finished this one and I like the composition a lot. It's nice to work a little larger,I enjoyed the process.This was a fun subject we encountered on our way to San Miguel Viejo for a mornings plein air session.Everyone was thrilled with the Rooster adding a surprise touch to the scene.Last Wed. we had a chance to paint plein air out at the Reicker horse ranch. It was particularly challenging trying to catch those fleeting effects of sun and shade on the distant mountains.I'll post a picture or 2 from that afternoon.

Just learning about this process

" Still Life with Hearts " oil on panel  6 x 8 ins. Donna Dickson
As this is all new to me , I'm going slowly. I couldn't seem to put a comment on my last post so I'm starting the process again. Now I know what it's like to be a beginner painter again! I'm sure my students will love to see this. So here's another image for today. I love doing these small still life pictures with found objects. Hope you enjoy them . Donna
