Week 15 and the end: week 16 (we did it)!

And here are the last two posts…. 
my summer camp for young students is starting on Monday, 
so Libby and I finished the series just in time.

For week fifteen I loved the opportunity to paint another clothes pin, and in BLUE too!

For the last week, Libby expressed some trepidation about coming up with a perfect last image.

 I, of course, picked one of my more difficult subjects out of her five photographs, plants! 

Each time I think this will go well! And then the painting doesn't live up to my expectations. 

It's good to go through that experience—my students frequently complain that they never achieve their vision when working in art… I just tell them, try again! And I will.

Now it's time to put away the paint brushes and turn to teaching. 
I'll be posting our summer projects and new paintings in the fall!
