Lessons learned, off for vacation

5 x 7 has now been done in an 8 x 10 format.  Such fun. New challenges. Is my dark pattern dark enough? Does the majesty of those eucalyptus trees translate.  So many issues.  A great learning experience with red barns. How could one lose? Just a moment in time.

Miss Pretty needed to have some form. We are looking a half of a sphere. Now, how could I forget that? LOL
Now she has more form and she is placed in reality with some lines holding her in place, helping your eye around. Next challenge is to take this information and start anew.  And maybe give her a second foot!
Off on vacation early, early Tuesday morning. So excited.
Happy  painting.


  1. I prefer the barn shape in this version and colors are great. Miss Pretty looks very pleased with her surgery too.

    have a fabulous time.

  2. Wish you a great vacation, you will come back with all the solutions for your quests :-)

  3. Both paintings are wonderful. I like the reds in your barn as well as the cute little fence.
