The Daily Paintworks weekly challenge was to do a rock painting. I went out in search of some rocks to photograph for ideas and found a lot of distractions. The lake is a good place to find distractions within nature. These rocks were found by the shore at the Perry Monument on Lake Erie.

In the past, I lived in Florida and we would frequently see these majestic creatures. I'm not sure what he is, a juvenile Blue Heron, or a Sandhill Crane. I wish I knew. In some of the photos he looked blue/grey. In the photo I painted this portrait from, he was facing the sunset and took on a brown/orange hue.
Painted in oil on an 8x10 flat canvas panel.

I did a small painting of the barn a couple years ago. This one is 16x20x1 1/2 inches. Painted in a rectangle style, it gives a slight abstract feel to the piece. All the brushwork is rectangles.
