Back to Where I Left Off

I decided to go back to my last landscape and make some changes. Here is the revised version, which looks a lot like the first version. It's interesting, whenever a painting is finished, I can see things that I wish that I had done differently. The good thing about small paintings, is that it is so easy to just make another one, and that is exactly what I did. Ah, if only the rest of life were so easy!

Six Quarters

After having no time to paint during the past 2 weeks, finally I squeezed in one quick painting of a favorite subject. Here we are back to the comfort zone, with the oranges slices. It feels great to finally have some time to do what I love!

Somewhere, to or from, Lake Tahoe

One more, done last week, from a drive by photo, on the road trip to Lake Tahoe. Still having fun with the landscapes. There will be more to come. It seems, that I have an endless supply of these photos.

One More Drive By

Here is one more of the same area as yesterday's post, actually somewhere between Lake Tahoe and Quincy. This was painted from a photo taken from the passenger seat, while on the highway. Still having fun experimenting with landscapes. At the same time, thinking that I should review, Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting.

Out of the Comfort Zone

This was done from a photo taken from the passenger side of the car, while driving somewhere between here, and Lake Tahoe. I enjoyed painting something "out of the comfort zone", and am excited to try some more of these drive by landscapes. Goodness knows, I have a whole stack of photos, taken from the car, just waiting!

Back From Lake Tahoe, and Back to the Familiar

After spending some time in Lake Tahoe, we are home. Getting back to painting, after being away, is challenging , and wonderful, all at once. For that reason, I decided to paint the familiar, citrus slices. So here we are, with some old friends, the orange slices. Meanwhile, I took a million pictures of beautiful places, and feel so inspired to attempt some landscapes. So stay tuned!
