# 161: Egg Drop

6" x 6" oil on canvas
After yesterdays painting disaster, I decided to simplify my palette with a white on white challenge. This painting was actually done a couple of hours before I "finished" it, but there is still something about it that pleases me a little.

6" x 6" oil on canvas

The color palette is a bit bold but sometimes Grannies and painters need to let loose. .

# 159: Strawberry Hill

6" x 6" oil on canvas

The pic is not ideal, since I took it after the sun went down. This was a fun painting. The reds where challenge, but I like how the strawberry in front turned out. That is a good thing, since it is the focal point.

# 158: Daisy Chain

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I find flowers difficult to paint, but I think that I am getting better at it. I decided to work with a high contrast value this time. Looking back at my paintings they all seem a bit subdued and so contrast will be my new objective.

# 150: Cutie with Tea

6" x 6" oil on canvas

the fabric and the reflections were fun challenges...though I might have got too caught up with the detail and therefore lost site of the whole. I will know better how I feel about it tomorrow.
