Pink Dog – Wooden Puzzle

I did a few of these puzzles as my donation to an animal welfare fundraiser.  They were fun and I’d like to do some again one day!  🙂

About James Bryant Conant

James Bryant Conant, the American chemist and educator, is known both for his role in the Manhattan Project — which developed the first nuclear weapons — and for his innovative tenure as president of Harvard University. Harvard had been a finishing school for the rich; Conant turned it into a world-class research university and created aptitude tests to choose students by ability. These tests became the basis for the SAT. He was born in Massachusetts in 1893 and died in New Hampshire in 1978.

A Vintage Car and a Glacial Norwegian Lake – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Ink

I had fun with this one.  It’s a combo of two photographs from Rozzi at WetCanvas.  The doors to the car were open in the photo and there were two guys standing on the running boards.  I left all that pesky stuff out.  Oh, and of course the car was black.   🙂

8″ x 8″ Acrylic on Ampersand Artist Panel

This is Broad Street, from Valri Ary’s WDE at WetCanvas.  Of course, I waaaay simplified it.  There was a lot of noise and I couldn’t wrap my head around all of it.  Okay…. I didn’t know how to paint it.  🙂

I think I should have painted all the people with their arms up in the air, screaming, “Help me, I’m falling!”.  I had my perspective down pretty good, until I added the ground.  All the people should be sliding to their left.  Oh well.  I had fun and that’s what counts.  There are no perspective police in my world.  *giggle*
