Blueberry Field acrylic 6"x 8"

I bought some acrylic paints at the UO trade show.  I've never painted with them before.  I was afraid to use good brushes so used two old scrubbers.  Sure enough the paint was very hard on them.  I wonder what people who paint with acrylics do.
So anyway it's pretty rough but I like the composition and colors better.  I plan to try a few more of these.

November Blueberry Field 6"x 8"

Finally back to painting after way too long.  I saw these fields near Corvallis on our way back from Thanksgiving in Newport.  It's really just so garish, but I want to work on this scene for a while.  I hope the weather  will let me do it from life one of these days.

Alley Puddles 8"x 8"

This has taken me 2 days to complete.  I'd sure like to paint faster.  Anyway I've been wanting to try puddles and with all the Oregon rain we have plenty of them.
This was my last day to paint for a while.  I need to go keep my dad company for a week or so.
