My name is Shannon Bauer. I was born in Michigan and now live right outside of Cincinnati, OH. I've always had an interest in art and loved to draw and paint as a child, but I took my first formal painting class when I was in college as an art major with a graphic design concentration. I've kept at it ever since. It seems to be the most effective way for me to clear my thoughts. (And now I just can't seem to stop...) Thanks for stopping by!
This week's Daily Paintworks challenge was to paint snow, and when I woke up this morning there was snow on the ground... so I thought I'd go with it. I need to make it a point to do more of the DPW challenges! There are always good ideas for when I feel I'm lacking inspiration.
I like clouds... and I especially like them at the end of a sunny day. These particular clouds were in Plymouth, Massachusetts last weekend, and I was happy I snapped a photo I could paint from. Now I'll be on the hunt for more cloud photos!
