Happy Monday. This is my latest oil painting that I finished over the weekend. I'm very happy with how this one turned out. I enjoy painting my blue bottles that I collect, and added a bowl of grapes (from Wet Canvas Ref Library) to the painting. I couldn't figure what to put in the bottle, then a light bulb went off and Chinese Lanterns came to my mind along with Honesty. I actually worked really hard to get the right spacing in here, which I believe I acheived. Next I really am enjoying how all the colors work with each other. I hope all of you enjoy this painting. Thanks for looking and hopefully you will comment. Gallery wrapped Canvas 6"by 6"

Hi Everyone I thought I would share the finished painting from my oil class. We all picked this photo of a female swan swimming in a pond at Brookgreen Gardens. The one thing I did learn on doing this is how to start a painting from a photo. I also learned to use Liquin , so that we could work in layers. The swan was the last thing we painted. I am having a wonderful time interacting with the other artists and learning new painting tips from each. In fact I signed up for the next class starting in March. This is on a 9"by 12" stretched canvas with various shades of oil paints. I can't wait til its Spring again and the Azaleas are all blooming. Enjoy and please comment. Thanks for looking
