Oil painting from a family photo. I cropped this image of my sister in her teens as I always thought she was so glamorous. She was about the same age as Shirley Temple and I think our mother must have copied some of the hairstyles of Shirley and other contemporaries. This is titled Carol Ann and is approx 8.5 x 11 inches on oil paper.

I decided to try an oil landscape. I love drawing/painting clouds and I had taken a sunset photo that I liked a lot. Although it doesn't quite capture the image of the photo, I think it captured the essence of the scene. This may be the first of a few landscape/cloudscape paintings.

Still isolating, staying home, and painting. Today I worked on depicting transparency of glass. This is something that I've done a fair amount with colored pencils and now I'm trying to achieve a similar effect with oils. I'm calling this Study in Transparency and Texture. It is 12x16" and gave me a reason to pull out some of the pretty glassware and bottles in my collection.

Looking Forward - 8 x 10" - oil on panel
As 2021 begins we have much for which to be thankful and many opportunities to create a good and rewarding future. As the saying goes, "you can't change the past, but you can create the future" -- or something to that effect. I have plans to include more painting and more positive thinking in this year and others that follow.
