Happy New Year


I am getting a slow start on the new year. It's been a tiny challenge to get back into the routine of things, after the frenzy of the holidays. Finally, I am able to paint again! I am so happy! This painting is on an eleven by fourteen sized stretched canvas. This was copied from the small six by eight painting, a few posts back. I had never done this before. I experienced more challenges, of a different kind, that I had expected. Definitely, it was more difficult. Now, I am happy to say that it is done. The painting was actually started before Christmas, but not finished until today. Closure is wonderful! Now, onward! A new year and new opportunities!

Love the color palette and the simplicity of the landscape. I'm leaning in this direction too! Interesting form, shape, negative and positive spaces and color!

What a beautiful painting! I knew it was Ireland, though I've never been there, before I read the earlier post. You did a great job conveying the 40 shades of green, Nancy. More, please!~

I like the abstract shapes and it has beautiful color harmony. We did visit England and Wales and I thought that the landscape, especially from the air, was spectacularly beautiful. A patchwork of fabulous color.
