Jefferson Memorial

This painting is my entry for the DSFDF challenge "Jefferson Memorial At Night". I actually like painting nocturnal scenes and haven't done one for a while so this was fun!

Day Break Beach

This is actually Dillon Beach, California but I used a mirror image of the area which helped me look at it a bit more objectively since I know it so well. I wanted to stay really loose and focus on the values and shapes, which is a challenge for me, I always want to nit pick!

Misty Morning

This was painted using a reference photo I took while visiting my husbands parents in Washington - they have a beautiful place!

Life's a Roller Coaster

A friend of mine on WC said "Chin up, kid. Life's a roller coaster. Take it one hill at a time." I need to remember that.
