Lillian's Cross

I was in the mood to paint another cross. A dear sweet lady I work with celebrated her 61st birthday today and in my absentmindedness forgot when it was. So, I painted this for her as a gift. It is actually on a 3x3 mini canvas and I painted the easel it will stand on in a wash of the mustard yellow. I love how it turned out with alot of texture. This picture really does not do it justice. I hope she likes it!

Studio Atelier Challenge

I was fortunate to learn about this new blog with monthly challenges. Its always fun to see h0w they turn out as well as see how others do. This is a snowy road with shadows. I found it hard to keep the perspective and make the shadows.
