Seeing Green

Seeing Green/ oil on board/ 4" x 4"/ gifted
Today is the last day of Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in Thirty Day Challenge. It has been just that little extra "push" to get a painting completed to post each day.  I have been made aware of some new amazing almost daily painters who also participated in this challenge.
My theme has been color. Therefore, today I decided to prime my board with a color that I haven't used before and let that peek out or scrape out in places. Again, I scratched the wet paint to add texture but this effect is far better when the paint is scratched through wet layers.

I am also painting a couple of large watercolors for upcoming show deadlines, so this will be all that I can post tonight.


  1. I love the colors in this painting. The background has a wonderful texture so it makes me think of the cat sitting on the window ledge looking out on a cold day.
