|"Sunset #3" 6 x 6 on canvas by Terry d. Chacon in plein air.|
My painting buddy Patricia Rose Ford and myself were treated to another great sunset on Sunday night Jan. 23, 2011. We arrived a little after 4 pm. I set up a few yards south of our last meeting on Alabama and began putting the initial drawing and first layers on my canvas. I then waited for the right time to put in the next layers and the beautiful sky.
They say 3rd time is a charm, however, after completing this painting I was in awe of the beauty of the sky. It was lit up like you wouldn't believe and becomes softer as the night takes over.
I will go back again this week and try for a painting one step later than this one. So far this is the 3rd painting, you can see the other two on a post before this. Each time I feel I am getting closer and closer to capturing a beautiful sunset. I suppose one can start and stop at anytime, so funny what you learn and really how much time you have to capture the beauty.
Until Next Time, ENJOY THE ART!

|Untitled 12 x 24 oil painting by Terry d. Chacon|
Happy New Year everyone! Let's get the year started out right!
This painting needs a titles. Email me by Monday 5 pm with a name. email@example.com You could win a set of notecards if your name is chosen.
About this painting. I took this photo of this litter that is now over 2 years old. I always wanted to paint it and actually used the photo on my blog for the past 2 years. Please note the change.
The puppies spend the first few weeks in this whelping box and then sleep in it at night. Every morning this is the view I get when I open the door. Notice the area that is chewed on the left side. Yep, this whelping box is old. I bought it from Margie Pugh probably 20 years ago. And she had used it for 20 years before. I don't think they make wood this good anymore. The only bad spot is the chewed area on the door. Each litter seems to put their own stamp in the same spot.
Now I have another litter growing in this box. The litter is out of Jubilan's Somerset (Seti) and Am., Mex. and World Ch. ShaCone Abaca Delightful (Lolita). They are growing like weeds and are now going on 3 weeks old. We are enjoying them and cannot wait to see how they mature.
Well I tried to upload a photo of the new litter and it won't let me, so stay tuned for photos in another post.
Until next time, please enjoy the ART! Looking forward to another great year and wishing you the very best. 2011
