"Two Birds"

7 x 9" oil/canvas mounted to hardwood panel


I learned so much from this painting!
It was so challenging to follow the light through the branches.
I have to be honest here. Trees and foliage in general are not one of my strong suits.
But I liked how I
was getting confident in laying down more paint. It was so much fun to mix up a big batch of color and keep the brush full.
Later this morning, I took that confidence to the larger painting I'm working on.

  1. This is beautiful, too. Artists amaze me. Wonderful job, almost perfect. You are very talented.

    I stumbled across your site because I clicked on my favorite folk singer Greg Brown and your blog came up, among others.

    I am glad I did because you paint beautifully.
