October 18 - Sunset of the Hawaii Trip's Beginning
"The Sun Sets and the Journey Begins" This was "kinda sorta" the view as we drove in over the hills to my brother and sister's-in-law home to spend the night before leaving tomorrow VERY early for the airport. This is an oil, 6 x 6 inches, and shows such a complementary color scheme of blue/orange! Yet (she says with a grin), the area where your eye goes is to the yellow in the sky! How much fun it is to break the rules in painting! The journey begins. $100 from the October daily painting page.
The folks' ashes are in the carry-on luggage, the computer will be packed, and my paints are in the checked luggage for your daily paintings. I'm taking the acrylics and watercolors. I am planning to build a page of images on the site, too, because it may be fun to see the whole shebang while we're gone. I'll post the page link as soon as there's something on it!
It was rough putting the dog in the kennel today, (again) and saying goodbye to the house that has barely had time to become our home, so when this trip is finished, you can count on seeing a bunch of "happy paintings" created when I return to the now-familiar studio space.
