ONYX RABBIT gouache painting 4"x4"

ANOTHER WINDOW VIEW  gouache painting 4"x5

I didn't realize this was my 100th post here until I was ready to publish.  It has taken me a long time to get here.  I started my other blog in 2006 and  have posted over 200 times..... never even noticed my 100th and 200th milestones there.  I started this blog in 2008.  Sometimes I've left one dormant while the posting on the other, lamenting why I have 2 blogs, but I always go back to the one left behind, just like I flip back and forth from one kind or subject of painting to another, always wanting to do it all. 

I think its time to thank my followers and if anyone might like to own the Window View painting above, just comment on my blog or send me an email at: bogorchid  at gmail dot com.  I will do a drawing this weekend and mail to the winner.

And now to my orginal post:  I've been doing a few small paintings in the last couple of weeks.  Some attempts of something larger haven't gotten anywhere.  I probably need to start using a larger brush for the larger ones.  These are two that I like best.  The bottom one was done with just ultramarine blue and raw sienna and white gouache.

I'll be putting at least one of my other small paintings on my other blog.
