New work in progress by Amy Crehore

(Above: new work in progress by Amy Crehore, oil on linen, unfinished)
Here's a look at my progress of a new painting featuring pink poppies. 
I'm not finished, but it's coming along well. 
This is a quick ipad photo of the painting on my easel.

Starting something new...

I've been drawing up a composition for a new painting. This one is imaginary, yet it is also 
inspired by my location. Like the last one, I have drawn a 
building in my own yard, but I am adding figures and other elements that aren't really there.
I have tinted my canvas with a wash of raw umber and vermillion.

Oregon Skies

Oregon Sky #2 1988, oil on canvas, by Amy Crehore 11" x 14"
When I first moved to Oregon from the east coast, I was struck by the ever-changing skies. 
I painted a few small skyscapes.
I scanned one of them (shown here) and this is exactly what it looked like: 
big ominous rain clouds moving over top of pure blue sky.
