Michael, lovely color and sense of atmosphere in that framed landscape.
JaeBeam, wow…getting painting done with a newborn is a sign of true dedication! Great start!
Tom, they’re all very nice. I especially like the loose start on that first one, and the lighting in the second.
Tylor, welcome again! Hope to see you around and nice painting - very exuberant, which seems just right for a present.
Marcia, all of those are well done. It’s clear the first two are off to a terrific start, and I love the bird. The one with the Madonna has a slightly otherworldly look about it, which seems appropriate.
Here’s one that I’ve been working on - and struggling with for a while now.
Tree Dance, 8x8
Once again, not the best image (a little too saturated, way too fuzzy), but getting closer, and that's all I have time for right now. Maybe I should try crowdsourcing for an SLR.
BTW, this is on a gallery wrap canvas, and I've painted the image around the sides too, which is kinda fun.
