Happy 4th of July everyone.  I thank God that I live in a country where I can freely express my thoughts and pursue my dreams regardless of my gender and race.  Today’s picture is of the American flag.

It may come to your surprize to find to find out that I am a movie star.  I was a movie extra in the “Transformers 3: Dark side of the Moon” film.  Parts of the movie was filmed in my beloved Chicago.  I had the honor of being one of 300 people selected out of 6000 auditioners to participate in the film.  Today I went to see the movie and I was able to pick myself out of the crowd of extras.  Todays picture is an oil painting on a 2″x2″ canvas of the many extras in one of the movie’s destruction scenes that I participated in.

Today was pretty uneventful.  I did go to an art studio open house in Wicker Park yesterday, and loved one of the artists’ paintings of sunflowers.  Here is my painting of a field of sunflowers in oil paint on a 2″x2″ canvas.  This painting fell short of the beautiful sunflowers in the other artist’s paintings.  Oh well I tried. Can’t blame a girl for trying.

We’ve had crazy weather over the past 48 hours.  Yesterday we had hail storms and winds that uprooted my rhubarb plants.  Today, the sky looked like the end of the world was looming.  The sky was swirling like witches brew.  It looked like the sky in the movie “Ghostbusters”.   Today’s picture is of the crazy rapture sky that happened around noon today.  It is an oil painting on a 2″x2″ canvas.

What an exercise! Painting everyday proved to be tougher than I thought.  Additionally, more exspensive than I thought.  Some changes will be made for July.  My paintings for July will most likely appear on very creative media in order to cut the cost of canvases.  Another lesson learned is:  Having a one bedroom apartment filled with 30 drying oil paintings is not good for a person with asthma.  I am not the biggest fan of acrylic paintings, however I will probably start painting in acrylic after I use up the oil paint.

Here are my favorite paintings from the month of June.  Which paintings were your favorites?

"He Walks with Me"

 

"Gone Churchin'!"

"To the Max!"

"Little Applesauce: The Boss"

"Pregnant with Possibilities"
