Most of my work is from my photographs and nothing gives me more pleasure to work on than those from England and the Cotswolds. Here's yet another in a series of Cotswold windows.
This is from the town of Bibury. I did it as a horizontal.
But then I also photographed it as a vertical. Now I'm polling people as to which is better. FB led me to exactly 50/50. What do you prefer?
Of course, Paris is a favorite too. I had lovely memories of sitting with Rick in Parc Vert Galant, at the very tip of Ile de la Citie. This was such a pretty little building.
I showed this before, a view of the Seine. I'm still not happy with it. But that's what learning is for.
Notre Dame and the Seine. Sigh. Back when it had a roof.
You might think Harry the Heron would be my favorite painting subject, but this is the first I have done of him! I'm rather pleased but more practice required!
Back this winter I painted this one of Morgan's Forge, the house we stayed in while we were in Bath. Compare it with the one below.
This one was done this week. Which do you think is the best keeper? I'm torn.
And I felt very good about this one -- a portrait of our Little Little Guy, now one! (Unfortunately, the portrait of his brother made him look like demon child from Hell and since he's anything but, that will not see the light of day, though I may save it in my work file!)
A little bloom. Not from a photo, but my take on a book illustration.
I did a few cards this week, too. An upcoming birthday...
A sympathy card for dear friends whose sweet boy went up to the Heavyside Layer. I think I will do this as a larger painting for the Gypsy Caravan, which I have to upgrade soon!
And this for our most recent Birthday Boy!
The inside says it all!
I leave you with my favorite daily vision.
And a favorite subject!
