Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 5 x 7 inches — 13 x 18 cm

This was for the Windows to the Words challenge last May. I think it is my very first butterfly painting. The design on its wings wasn’t difficult but it was a lot of work. I enjoyed every minute of it though, especially since I got to use a lot of bright blue.

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 8 inches — 15 x 20 cm

I painted this lotus flower for the April challenge on James Parker’s Windows to the Words. It took me a few more hours to finish than usual, but I had a lot of fun with it. I especially enjoyed painting the reflections in the water.

More Windows to the Words…

The “For the Birds” challenge back in March was at the same time a contest with prizes.

Bluebird Painting - For the Birds Contest

My bluebird painting above won 2nd place and I received these two lovely paintings by James Parker. I am actually glad I wound up second because I am thrilled to own them both! Thank you, Mr. Parker!

Here’s a picture of me holding one of the paintings:

This painting is on gessoed 1/8″ hardboard. It’s my first time to try this support, but I will be using it for most of the future daily paintings.

By the way, here is the bird painting that I was talking about a few days ago. It is an illustrative type of painting which I like very much. I hope you do too.

Bluebird Oil Painting

Daily Painting #263 – Bluebird
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 6 x 6 inches — 15 x 15 cm

This month, James Parker posted pictures of four different birds on his Windows to the Words challenge blog. I just recently came across his blog and thought I’d join in as well. My first entry is this little bluebird — I really like his bright blue wings.

The other night I completed another bird painting for the challenge. It is not a daily painting as it is slightly bigger. It’s a different style from all the others that I have done before, and I am really excited to share it with you to see if you will like it as well. I will post it here as soon as it is dry enough to scan.

Be sure to check out the Windows to the Words blog to see the different interpretations from all the artists who participated.
