I did this painting for my aunt. She had asked me to draw her dog. However, I had to put off drawing her picture for this project. I just didn’t have time between work and Imlay’s art. She was very understanding about it and she had done so much for me that I decided to create her painting in another way.

On Guard #11

This one is my favorite painting from this project. I have always drawn animals and knew that there were a lot of dog lovers out there so I picked a dog I’ve always wanted. I couldn’t be happier with how he turned out and the placement of the painting. Not only is it hanging from the shop where I spent the time creating these paintings but also I love the way it plays off the buildings color.

I spent a lot of my off time thinking about what my next painting sould be. I could be inspired by something someone talked about or something I saw. During that week a lot of people were talking about boats. There was a boat race coming up and my friend bought herself a boat. So I painted my own boat.

I love sunsets. Love the way they are never the same. I had bright metallic paint that I thought would look like the sun shining on water so I painted a sunset on the ocean.

This was a challenge given to me. There we as a bunch of tractor paint set out for us to use and I had a day. My original idea for the painting was different from what I ended up with. Tractor paint dries too slow for my original plan so I had to get inventive. I remembered a project from class that involved painting with a stick and it grew from there.

Elphaley #3

As my last piece I decided to do something​ different and fun. The idea came from a friend who had me draw a similar elephant on her back to see if it was a tattoo she would like. I thought it would be a fun piece. I know she got a kick out of it (the painting) and wanted to take it home!

Palmer #2

City Hall (inside) 150 North Main Street I wanted my first painting to represent something about Imlay City's history. So when I discovered that the railroad played a major part in putting the City on the map I knew I just had to paint a train. I decided on a black and white theme to represent old time photos.
