This is my submission for Karin Jurick's Different Strokes from Different Folks blog. I painted it in guache, which is actually one of my favorite mediums. I like the textures that the windows creates, and I've simplified traffic....oh, if 34th street always looked this empty.
Unfortunately, before I could get it photographed and uploaded my elderly mother fell and I had to fly off to be with her in the hospital so this never made it to Karin's blog. I enjoyed painting it.
Also, I'm posting a picture of Bessie, our friends yellow lab. I usually use Yupo paper for my pup paintings, but with her slick coat, I went with transparent watercolor and and colored pencil. Bessie is getting framed this week and was a 25th wedding anniverary present to them.
And, life is settling down a little now and I'm ready to attach my travel photos to Australia and New Zealand. I haven't had time in the last month, as my husband and I co-chaired a fund raising event for the Red Cross. It was a fun wine tasting/pairing dinner that raised over $8000 - pretty successful I'd say for a first time event! Now back to a little painting time.
