Red Poppies Redux

Last year I did a painting of a Red Poppy. I liked it, but I didn't love it. So I decided to work a little digital magic and try to turn it into something that I love. Guess what? It worked. Behold, my Red Poppy Redux.

So now instead of this just being an acrylic painting, it's become a mixed media painting: a mixture of acrylics and digital art. I truly do love it now. There's just something about poppies I have always loved. :)

Dragonfly Stained Glass Painting

I watched another tutorial recently by Brandi Dayton where she did a painting to sort of look like stained glass. Since I like to create actual stained glass from time to time, I thought it would be fun to try a painting that looked like it. This is the result.

This was fun to do and rather relaxing too. I will probably do more stained glass-style paintings in the future. I chose a dragonfly because my mom really loved dragonflies. I think she would have liked this one. :)
