Ok, now I have gotten to a point where I need to step back and live with the painting for a while. I wish I took a picture of the flowers as I originally painted them(my goof). At any rate they stood out too much being way to bright. They became the picture instead of part of the whole picture. I had to soften them up a little. At leasts its easy to do in pastel. So heres the picture so far:

The winter is hard to go out and paint because of the cold. We havent had any snow to supply inspiration for any pictures. I love the snow. Thought I would dig into my computer to find images that my friend took in Italy. I was impressed with the form of the objects in the picture. So I thought I would post the start and progression of the painting so far. I am doing this in pastel. The first image is the major blocking in of the objects. Then I proceeded with an alcohal wash to set in the images and check form. The last picture is the building up of the objects.

Well I had to change the template. Since this is new to me you couldn't read the writing on the former. I had duplicate pictures too, so I guess this works better. Im new to this so if I goof be forgiving. I at least managed to do this with my daughters help. Thanks Jamie. Eventally Ill put some labels and comments on pictures, I hope.

Just a little space for me to post works I've done. I love going out into the world and capture the beauty I see. God blessed us with so much beauty to see around us and I am exhilarated when I am out there. AND no Im not Rembrandt but I wish I were. My favorite thought made up by little old me is; HOPE IS THE PLACE WHERE DREAMS BECOME REALITY AND IDEAS HAVE WINGS. (feel free to use if you like). I hope to add some of my pictures and hope you share.
