#20 - One Year/100 Paintings - Mt. Vernon Place Magnolia Tree - 5 x 7 acrylic on canvas board. I think I overdid this style of painting that I'm using right now, but let's see what develops in future paintings.
#18 - One Year/100 Paintings - Random Map Crunch View - 7 x 5 Acrylic on canvas board. Still working on my technique in this painting, keep painting to reach that goal.
I really wanted to get out yesterday and shoot some instant photos with my newest instant camera, the Lomo'Instant Wide. I've haven't shot with it extensively to get a feel for the camera and I thought I could try using the close-up lens and the Lomography Splitzer. I had also packed two other cameras, my Holga WPC 120 and my handy Pentax Q10 mirrorless camera. I spent a good bit of time by the lakeside trying to capture some detailed photos of the shore debris and made a few mistakes, but that's how you learn the camera. I also took a walk out on one of the horse riding trails as there weren't any riders on such a chilly day. There's an area along the trail thick with tall needle-less pine trees that I've wanted to get back to take some photos. Here are a few samples from the afternoon.
