Four Panel Paintings

Here are four paintings that I poured together on 8 inch wood panels.  Numerous colors were used to create these painting.  The mixture for all the colors were the same: 1 part acrylic paint, 2 parts Floetrol, 1/10th water,  2 drops silicon.

Circles of Flowers

This drawing was done on a 16″ x 20″ Art Board.  It took a very long time to finished.  (Okay, I had to stop and declare it finished.)  It was inspired by art work I saw on TV.  Every time the circles cross each other, they changed colors.

I was created with Derwent Watercolor Pencils and Derwent Inktense Pencils.

Plastercraft Houses 2019

Yes, it appears that I only painted two houses in 2019.  I did not get a chance to seal the houses until a few weeks ago, because of cold weather and Covid-19.  (I can’t varnish if someone in the household sinuses gets upset around paint and varnish.)

These are California Creations houses.  The company went out of business in the early 2000s.  Yes, these have been in storage waiting for me to paint them.

3D Design of Houmas House

Here it is!  This is what I have been working on since May 14.

I selected the Houmas House in Louisiana because it is one of the most beautiful and peaceful areas in Louisiana, and because I had a bunch of pictures.

I worked on it about 20 minutes per day.  On July 3, disaster happened.  For some reason the image was locked.  I could not make any changes.  This event was very discouraging until I decided to see if I could “duplicate” the design in the program.  Success, I now had a copy of the original that I continued to develop.  I also decided to create parts of the design in other files and import them into the design so it would load faster.

I designed it so it could be 3D printed; each floor, the post and steps, the railing, the original building in the back.  One day soon, I may try to print it.   The stairs will not print, not enough support structure.  Everything in the design, is no smaller that .4 mm.

This is the view from the front door.  I decided to make the windows panes transparent so the inside of the house could be viewed through the windows.

The house is not exacted.  I did not have pictures of some of the areas of the house.

This is the design in Tinkercad.  It will take a while to load because there are numerous parts. Houmas House

Here are a couple picture of the Houmas House.

Walk Around Park

Here are a few pictures of my first outing since….  I can’t go many places, but I can go to the park if I stay off of the playground equipment.  My first outing was a walk around L.E. Ray Park.

I liked how the sun was reflecting off of the grass.

The geese will leave you along, as long as you don’t go near their babies.
