Instead of starting a new thread every time I paint something new, I'll just park each one of 'em here.

This is what I'm working on today. I'm doing a new series of paintings featuring a little girl fashioned after my granddaughter and my beloved Stumpy. Two of my favorite loves.

Today's painting finds the tot lounging in a tree with Stumpy nearby, both blowing bubble gum bubbles, with leaves and blossoms blowing around. It's not done yet, obviously, but man am I having a good time with it.

I'll outline the girl in the actual colors, blonde hair, flesh tones, red shirt, blue shorts, white socks, but the figure will stay in silhouette. I also need to include the bubbles and the blossoms.

If you guys would rather, I'll stop showing the progress shots and only post when it's finished. I like to keep track of progress for future work, and I like seeing other artists' progress, but if it's irritating, I'll just post the final product. just let me know.

When this thread opened the painting on the left appeared as a bird's eye view of a cracked landscape, then I saw the one on the right which is a tree. Pareidolia!

Thankee. kid n Cat are in Paris today. Will post some progress when it looks a little less frighteningly like a flop. They're bound to happen, but I've got high hopes for this one. I think I can save it.

Who knew bright and colorful sunsets could be so tricky? I need clouds. And Trees. And lots of 'em!

...wish me luck!
