I'm participating in Leslie Saeta's 30/30 painting challenge. I didn't do this the first time around, so I'm attempting it this time.
I decided to paint some architectural features that I photographed years ago when we lived in Europe. I just loved this French Architecture and the amazing amount of detail that went into the building. As I was pondering a title it occurred to me that all of my French Faces have beards, which got me thinking about the latest bearded fascination, Duck Dynasty. So I have my own Canarde Dynastie (Duck Dynasty in French). Day 1 I painted William he is the Canarde Comandant. He has to put up with the rest of these blockheads and all their shenanigans.
Today I painted "Jacques" also knows as Jac. He's William's brother and will do anything to get out of work at the family Canarde call business.
Great work, Carrie. I love these types of architectural details.ReplyDelete

I love these Carrie! Shows even though you are in motion (a moving car), you can still paint lovely paintingsReplyDelete
What a fun series to watch unfold.ReplyDelete
Wow! You guys are all so brave to take on this challenge! I was hesitating at the beginning, as I still remember how much pressure I was under the first time around. But I am totally encouraged by you and Kara, and decide to jump in at last! I love your new direction -- the limited palette made this series very graceful, and emphasized the 3-D effect really well. The sculptures look whimsical -- and I am amazed that you can do one of them each day give the crazy amount of details involved!...ReplyDelete
Awesome idea with 30 and 30 challenge!ReplyDelete
