This funny little duck greeted me in my inbox this morning. What a look! And a great name for a painting!
Revisiting a favorite subject. I have wanted to use this white linen tea towel in a still life for sometime. It was all about getting the composition to work with the red stripe. After more than a few challenging tries of pushing the towel around, rearranging the oranges, I found a setup that spoke to me… (click on the image to see the rest, and her blog)
I say: I’d hang that one in my kitchen for sure!
John Farnsworth (my pops) introduced me to this painting and this painter. Here’s what he said about it:
I like the graduated light and the road over the hills arrangement of the red stripe.
His daily painting today looked like this…
INDIO Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches
I spent the day today at the Indio, California Dog Show. This thing is HUGE. I read somewhere that there are some 3500 participants. I could easily believe there are more. I’ll try to get more details tomorrow. Today, though, I got about 500 photographs (I hope that over time, that will result in ten paintings and five or six salvageable photographs [for his daily photograph blog]). I also managed this one painting of a Basset Hound that I call INDIO, from today’s shoot.
I say: What a face!!
Such a perfect Monday painting! This is exactly how I am feeling today. Sugarfoot and I could easily fit into this painting. In fact, I wish I were there right now. In those lovely soft shadows…

I swear each bug this woman paints is cuter than the last! I love bumblebees and this one is no exception. Look at those amazing translucent wings and the detail on the legs… Love this bug! She’s got an ant and a fly to follow. Can’t wait to see them!

Can it be?! Has it already been a year? Yep! One year ago today, my father joined the daily painting movement. Having been a full time painter for about the last four decades (longer than I’ve been alive!) this wasn’t much of a stretch for him. What is different, though, is the size of these little paintings. Every day he paints a 6×6 inch oil painting. This is quite a bit smaller than his usual works- including a 20×30 foot mural!! He says the freedom of these little paintings is offering the most fun he’s had in years. Happy Birthday, Pops!
