Painting number one was supposed to be an urban landscape, however, since I live nowhere even remotely urban, I've adjusted the project to include a structure/architecture, but it's not very urban-like. We have an old abandoned sugar mill in town, and next to it is an old storage barn. I spent a great deal of time taking a ton of pictures of the area, but something about the barn stood out to me. Why? I'm not sure. The actual structure is quite dull in person, but in playing with the photo, I think it became more interesting to me.

The second painting is an abstract that I have both struggled with, and completely avoided at times. It's still not very far along, but I am trying my best to make myself work on it to get so some sort of stopping point.

In addition, I'm working on a watercolor painting, so I should probably get back to things paint related. At least we're almost half way through the semester. In some sense, it's gone very quickly, but in other ways, I'm longing for it to be done and over.
