Together it’s possible…

The dogs and the bike worked out in unison along Lake Michigan’s edge in Lincoln Park, Chicago. They were unimpeded, leashed together and moving quickly. I was impressed. Couldn’t figure out who was enjoying the Lakefront more. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

No excuses with this couple. A few moments prior they were resting on a nearby park bench, deep in conversation, enjoying each other and their outing. May we all have this drive as we age; all positive motion. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

More goosey antics…

What looks like a racing goose is just one trying to clean all those layers of feathers. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

It takes a lot of energy to bath all those goose feathers. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The contrast between the ripple design in the harbor waters and the feathered pattern of the geese seemed to compliment each other. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The background flower compliments the main subject in this close up photograph of a wonderful cluster of unique beauty. God’s creativeness continues to awe me. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Summer acrylic attempts…

Still learning. I chose an old wall along Lake Michigan’s pathway to challenge myself this summer. I began plein air and spent quite awhile finishing indoors using photographs for support my memory. Why choose the wall? Because I think it has character; and I love characters. Hmm…..

The Red-wing Blackbird is an old favorite pal on my prairie adventures. Was able to take a good photograph of him, so painted him from the photograph.

And finally, two paintings were after I listened to a two part “20 brush strokes” class online. These were two projects, choosing five brush strokes learned (any 5 of 20). One is the wall (straight horizontal view) and the other is a field with trees in background. Just fun.

Enjoying retirement! Comments/critiques are always welcome and encouraged!
