Happy Independence Day!

201st post here – this painting is a larger size for me. It was so much fun to work on, with plenty of challenging greens. Makes me think of the phrase “can’t see the forest for the trees”. Here I can’t see the meadow for the weeds. It’s like a wall of foliage, or like those mostly underwater photos where you can see the surface. And it’s also pretty flowers – what could be more predictable and typical to paint? The girls kept me company in the art room, making their own lovely pictures. I have a few more paintings I’d like to complete before the summer art fair in Glenview (July 24-25), so I’m getting back to it.

    Love seeing your daughters creativity – has to be a lot of fun to paint together. Your painting is gorgeous – the foreground flowers are beautiful.

    Beautiful! So real it looks like a photograph. Love Merry and Holly’s paintings too!

    Nice Deb. I like that size/proportion. I have a canvas that size too I’ve be planning to paint on.
