Art Challenge Day 2

Today’s 3 art pieces are from 2004, this was a time I was flirting with making oriental art and learning oriental brush writing. The white mum and Crane and Tortoise are in private collections, the Bamboo in the Fog is one of my favorites and is in my home.  I still do some brush painting once in a while when I need to relax. I am going to nominate Sherryl Buchler for the challenge if she hasn’t already been nominated.

Art Challenge Day 1

Two of my friends, Janis Doucette and Chris Predd, nominated me to share some of my art in the 5 day art challenge on Facebook.  I’m going to have to think of someone to nominate next since this has been going on for awhile and many artists I know have already been nominated. So, to start off I thought I would share some of my paintings from a few years ago. This is pre-art quilting, 2003, all are acrylics on canvas. The crotons are in my home and the other two are in private collections.
