Amy's art in progress.
See regular updates of my progress on each new painting.



My next painting is going to be a commissioned painting with a Texas flair. (aka my "get excited about football season" painting!)  Stay tuned... especially you Longhorn fans out there.  






No, I am not going minimalist.  Just be patient.

Musical Inspiration of the Day:
Switchfoot, "Learning to Breathe"




The first cow I've ever painted. 

Musical inspiration of the day:

Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, "Greatest Hits 2."

Nora Jones, "The Way Back Home."







Painted some shrubbery. :) 

Musical inspiration of the day:
Lauryn Hill, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."

(plus I watched the Olympics as I painted: men's gymnastics & swimming. Go USA!)





I worked on the ground and thought a lot about composition today.  My best idea of the day was to make the land undulating. It will be eventually anyway.

Inspiration of the day:
Olympics: Woman's sand volleyball bronze metal game.  This Australian chick played with a shoulder that needs reconstructive surgery.  What a woman. Go USA!





I added a lot today. More undulations and thick paint to mimick dirt...My moment of victory was the idea to make fence posts.

Momentary side bar-  
for the first time I used poo as a compositional element. :)  Good times.  Good times indeed.

Inspiration of the day:
Olympics. US Men's basketball v. Argentina.  (Don't want to talk about it, though Manu Ginobli can still be my friend.) 




Finishing touches... like the dead bush thingys in the foreground and the beginnings of thorns on the cactus.

Inspiration of the Day:
Olympics withdrawl...

everyone would do it.  The hard is what makes it great."
