The unveiling!

I said if you promised not to laugh I will show you my first painting that I completed last night.



Here it is:

I got my inspiration for this one from one of my favourite artists - Cindy Thornton. I just love her curly trees!


I found a special place for it in my dining room

Next up is something totally different. I have so much to learn and I only have a class every second week. It may be a while before I'm able to post a picture of the next one.

This painting is beautiful Michelle, its amazing how the shape of the tree adds such great movement to the scene. Keep at it, you are already a sought after artist.
