Day 10 sunflower 7, day 11 morning glory 2 and meet Charlie

I am posting day 10 and 11 together in hopes of catching up ūüôā¬† I would have been up to date on my painting if I hadn’t scraped all of the paint off of my painting last night. It was just not working, sometimes you just have to walk away lol.

So why am I am behind a day in painting and 2 for posting? Well we have adopted a new cat (Charlie) and he is not fitting, he is a bit of a bully with my other cat and dog. He is the sweetest cat with people.

Meet Charlie! Look at that face! A little angel (when he is asleep lol) I sure hope he starts to be more tolerant of sweet Theo my other cat. If anyone has any advice on how to make him stop attacking Theo I would love to hear it :). I have read everything I can find online and have not found anything that is making the situation better :(.

“Poppies and Lupines” is¬†my painting for day 8 of the challenge. I am starting the second week off with one that is a bit bigger ( 8×8″ ) I really like the looseness of this. Yesterday’s painting was a bit more on the detailed side and that’s¬†OK I liked it as well.

White Trillium oil painting ‚Äď Day 7 of the 30 day daily painting challenge

Wow hard to believe we are a week into the challenge already. For day 7 I have painted a white Trillium, I love the thick impasto that I have added to this little painting.

There is nothing like going for a walk in the woods early spring and having the floor of the forest carpeted with these, it is breathtaking. Thanks for stopping in I hope you enjoy this little piece of spring :).

Pink Coneflowers Day 2 in the 30 paintings in 30 days Challenge

Strangely this painting does not seem loose to me. Maybe it is just not as loose as I want or maybe I need to practice economy of brush strokes instead. I am not sure. I really love the flower on the back left-hand side (it is loose and painted¬†with fewer strokes) and the thick juicy paint makes me happy lol. See what did I tell you, I am already learning ūüôā That is the best part of these challenges.

30 paintings in 30 days February 2018 Challenge

It is that time again ūüôā This year it is starting on Feb first instead of the usual January. It is a great way to start the year off right and I am excited to do it. If you would like to give it a try go to Leslie Saeta’s site here: https://www.saetastudio.com/30-in-30.html

This year I am going to focus on trying to paint as loose as I can with nice thick juicy paint (not an easy feat for me) and I am going to post them no matter what lol. You learn so much from painting small paintings every day and you make lots of mistakes which actually leads to even more learning (love it!). So here we go, this is day one from yesterday! Let me know what you think. #30paintingsin30days

A Canada Goose is on my Easel Update #2

Canada Goose painting update 2 oil by Krista Hasson

Canada Goose update¬†2. Wow! It has been quite awhile since I worked on this painting of the Canada Goose (since April actually). Now that I have some time again I will try to finish it up quickly. It is funny how when you put something away and then you look at it, it looks different than you remember. I decided I wanted the background to be darker so I adjusted that and I am going to add some lighter reeds and water reflections still. The last thing I will do is the head and beak. So stay tuned for the next update … it should be the last ūüôā

You can see my other posts for the Canada Goose by clicking the following links РUpdate 1 and the initial Block in 

I hope you are enjoying the updates on my progress. Thank you for stopping in, I am grateful for your support.  Have an awesome weekend!

Border Collies Finished – commission Oil WIP

Border Collies finished commission WIP oil painting by Krista Hasson

Border Collies commission is finished! It has been a crazy busy start to the new year I have never painted or had so many deadlines like I have this year (that is a good thing). I am so happy to finally have had the time to finish up this commission of these two wonderful collies. I stopped taking commissions a while ago but I am such and animal lover I cannot resist or turn down dogs :). I loved painting them and I hope the owner is thrilled when she sees it in real life.

Now I have to start painting for the upcoming studio tour I am participating in soon. The studio tour is June 10th and 11th,  you can go to our Kings County Studio Tour page to find out more details. Cheers!
