Approaching Storm


Finally something to post! My month long design project has finally come to a close, so I can now get back to the serious work of painting! The above image was created for a Mother's Day card. I usually create all of my cards for various occasions. This one was an interesting challenge. I used the Cheap Joe's greeting cards that I purchased some time back. The painting is only 3" x 5". I am not use to working at that size. I ended up making 3 "Fancy Cards" as my wife calls them. All of the same subject. The image above was the last one I did, and one of my favorites. Quick sure brush strokes, completed in 3 minutes. The first two that were done took too long and looked over worked. This was a fun exercise which I will definitely do again.

Wow! You did this in three minutes? That's awesome! I love the freshness of the color and brushstrokes.

Nice painting. I'm sure the cards looked great.

Linda,

Thanks for the comment. Getting in and out of the painting helps with the freshness. Not to mention I did the same scene three times!

Terry, Thanks for stopping by and posting the comment!
