Egrets In Trees

  Well I am proud of myself because this is my third new entry into my blog this  January, so I am working toward becoming a daily blogger again.   This painting is from one of my photos of our trip to Magnolia Plantation outside of Charleston.  It was a beautiful summer day when we were there so I hope this shows it.
Thanks for looking in and love to read your comments.

  On our way to Pennsylvania for Christmas we will go through the Shenandoah Valley heading north. One winter this area had a large snow storm right before we drove through.   This is from a photo we had taken of the area.   I took a lot of liberties with this picture, I changed the time of day to sunset and the road is now a creek.  I love the way the oranges and purples play off each other and I was real happy with the reflections in the creek also.  I enjoyed painting this, I hope you will enjoy viewing it.  Thanks everyone.

A Challenge Orange

                                         Oil on Linen Gallery Wrapped Canvas  6"by 6"

  This is the painting I did for the Orange Challenge in the oil group of Paint My Photos   I used the photo provide by Lillian Bell titled Copper Kettle with Oranges

I like this photo because of the way the oranges reflected in the kettle.  I think I caught the shine of the kettle and am happy with it     Thanks for viewing and please leave a comment

  Happy New Years everyone.    Here is my first post for 2013.  I named this Joy since it looks as though
 the trees are singing with the warmth of the sun.   My one resolution is to post in here more often this year as I plan to do a lot more painting.   I hope everyone can feel some sun on them today.   Thanks for viewing and  hope to read some comments.
