Loopy - Day #27

I'm feeling a little loopy keeping up with painting every day
 for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.

In addition I am getting ready for a show at the Keokuk, Iowa Art Center that I am sharing with my artist friend 
Carlene Dingman Atwater.

We will be showing quite a few of our 30 Day paintings.
The ones that are DRY!

5" x 7" - Oil on Panel

The reference photo was taken at a Canadian airshow 
 by Prince Edward Island Photographer Stephan DesRoches
who was kind enough to give me permission to use it for this painting.

This is quite a small painting and was done wet over dry.
I painted the blue background the night before 
with a low toxicity M. Graham Alkyd/Walnut Oil medium.

I think I will do a larger version in the future 
and paint it wet into wet.
This should create more of an atmospheric effect
which should be fun.


  1. I haven't been able to comment on every post, but believe me when I say that I have enjoyed each painting you have done for this challenge. I was just telling an artist friend of mine about you, and how you paint the air around the airplane! This is fantastic!

  2. We love your work Carroll and look forward to seeing your show at the Keokuk Art Center on Friday night from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. We encourage everyone to come meet Carroll on Friday and experience her wonderful art pieces.
