I went to a workshop given by Dale Laitinen and did these two paintings:

This is of Virginia City and is mixed media, and my first full sheet painting (22″x30″). it is semi-abstract.
This is based on a photo I took on the coast near Monterey. I am proud of this since the idea, photo, and drawing were all mine. Dale had helpful suggestions along the way. Both are on 300lb paper.
