"The Blue Stroke" is a acrylic painting on a heavy Strathmore cold press paper.
About 7" x 8" size.
This season is pretty bad for arthritis I guess!
Not doing too good with my pains, but I like winter!!!
I like cold weather!

Portrait . Work in progress
A big size portrait I am working on on a 24" x 48"
I wanted to simplify and make the portraits look more painterly than too realistic.

After playing with the back ground, changing it couple of times, I am finally
happy with this back ground.
It has been also difficult to get a correct tone picture since it has a lot of blues.
So I have to get pictures with 2 different cameras, to compare.
The skin tones are little different still than in the painting, but, I think these are the best I can capture.
Thanks for looking! Appreciate your comments.

Still Life "Pepper !" by Alabama Artist Usha
I love to paint red peppers. Working on color variations in red is difficult. Can't mix whites!
Isn't it fun!
8" x 10" canvas panel
Price: $ 100.00

Abstract design with Yellow ocher, black and whites. Limited colors but I liked the texture developed within the variations. Just amazes me...
