Three Friends

My newest. Oil 12 x 17 a close up

I'm considering this one as done. I am not too fond of my tree areas on either side... I didn't want to mess around too much with it tho.

Color Pencil Cupcakes

MMMMmmmm cupcakes!
Here is my entry to the Different Strokes from Different Folks Challenge from Karin Jurick. This is prisma color pencil on 11 x 13 smooth
I think I will try this picture out in watercolor also. I enjoyed this so much because I love leaving the background white and have those primary colors pop!

Army Packer- Remington

This is my Following the Masters entry
it is a Frederic Remington
for copyright legalities: This is not for sale and is for my own personal use.....
calling it a "study".... One website says this was painted before 1922, approx. 1901
a bit of a closeup As you can see I changed the background and foreground.... This below is the original:
I did enjoy doing this in oils. It was a perfect size, 5.5" x 5.5". I haven't painted too many animals before. Now on to the cupcake challenge on Different Strokes from Different Folks!!!!!
