I printed out a picture of a pinecone (cause I didn't have any handy)...and sat down with grandson, while he painted a picture, to attempt to paint one with acrylics. I had to stop after the first layer of paint was down, to settle a squabble with the kids...and it sat around a few days, then I went back to it with chalk pastels and added some details.
I think it looks sort of impressionistic. Am I right?? I love that style of painting.
I tell you, if I get in a mood to do something supposedly artistic, not much can stop me...it's weird....kinda like the postman will deliver the mail through wind, hail and snow...or kinda like when they tell you you will "get an urge to push" when you are in labor (hahahaha...it's more like YOU WILL PUSH CAUSE YOU HAVE NO CHOICE)!!! OK...anyway...that is what comes over me...and then when I look at what I did, it usually looks fairly good to my untrained eye...so I might post it and torture all of you who know good art. Sorry. Love ya anyway!
