Barak Obama Positive

Barak Obama
"Obama" 5x5 oil on canvas
I think I'm done... I really need to paint McCain quickly for the fundraiser deadline. This is from camera, I'll post a scanned one later if it looks better or if I modify the portrait again.

Today is a beautiful fall day *cringe* did I say FALL??? DOUBLE *CRINGE* you know what comes after fall??? It's enough to bring tears to my eyes that's soaking up this beautiful crispy day. I woke up to opened window, compliments of my sweetheart and it really put an exclamation to my day! So, even though I woke up with a pounding headache and a lousy feeling of flu symptoms, I popped some vitamin Cs and aspirin and chugged some water so I can keep painting. :)

Last night my hubby brought home 2 dozen long -stemmed roses! And I mean BEAUTIFUL! It's all I can do not to want to paint each color for a specific still life!!!!!! But I know I have other paintings on the burner as well GAH! Deadlines and lovelines - story of my life!

For now I leave you with Senator Obama next to my roses :)


  1. Hi Erika long time no see! I see you are cranking out some really nice work! Love the Obama painting, can't wait to see McCain. If you did one of Biden and one of Palin and auctioned them off, I know who'd win!

  2. Well hello Caren what a surprise! Thank you so much for the kind words. I think I may consider that! Biden and Palin would make good subjects as well. Maybe I'll auction Obama and McCain prints since my deadline for the fundraiser is fast approaching. And you know, I haven't listed on Ebay in at least 6 months I think.

    Please don't be a stranger, I think of you each time I pass by my little OSWOA landscape by you :)

  3. Better git to paintin on those lovely flowers - they don't last.

    Judging by your political paintings, I expect the floral will be lovely.

  4. HI there, thanks so much for your confidence, now I get to paint dead roses LOL! Love your flower paintings!!


Thank you for taking the time to comment ~Erika
