Having Fun

I just love doing these small pictures ( 5x7 ) as it gives me a chance to experiment, learn my brush strokes, improve my color choices, and learn about composition. They can be completed in a relative short time. Somehow just practicing on scrap canvas is not the same. The Tree was from a photo I took while visiting my daughters in Denver and the Sunrise was from my imagination. I am finally learning not to be a slave to a photo but to use it as a reference....duh!!! as the young would say. There is so much to learn that I have to keep reminding myself to enjoy the journey... So happy journey everyone. Honor
