Jenn Wilson painted this abstract poinsettia today after buying the festive plant at a school fun-raiser concert to benefit travelling ukelele players.
I like the softness and the partial view of an otherwise very busy flower for artists to paint. Nice composition and overall treatment.

Yes it was raining steadily, so I set up my paints in the bandstand next to the children's playground. Of course it was a no-school day so several crocodiles of kids came sheltering in after a few rides on the wet swings. Bless 'em, some said my painting was "nice" although I struggled with it. Anyhows, here it is - unpretentious, loose and brushy.

My daughter Jenn and I painted this critter from an earlier 6 x 6 study I had done of a crab on the beach at Duncan, BC.
We worked with brushy strokes and medium impasto to get a painterly result.
Not too finished, not too sketchy.
