Hi everybody!! I've been painting a bit, dreaming of a warm sunny tropical vacation. It's freezing outside and there is an inch of snow on the ground,but it's amazing what the right music, some extra wood in the fireplace, and a good imagination can do for your soul in the middle of winter. Here is my painting of the 4 Pleasants on our family vacation.


Here is another one.


Thank you Keigs for framing them.

Looks great! Keep 'em comming!

For the first picture on p.1, you can cut the glare out by turning off your camera's flash. Just put the painting under brighter lights, or outside in direct sunlight works best.

Thanks Big Bro, I like that one too. Less is more sometimes. I primered and painted the board first with bright red and then sketched my design with acrylic paint pens and I really like the effect letting the bright red show through has.

Mad Cap Romanian, you are right, we have since gotten a better camera and are are also getting more skilled at taking pictures. Thank you for the advise.

Dawn, that would be very cool to live closer. You are invited anytime you want to drop in!! We will have to get together sometime. We have been recieving lots of compliments on the painting we got from you. I love it more every time I look at it.
