Sanctuary again

acrylic and oil on canvas 16"x20"
I really liked this painting the first time I did it, so I did it again on a larger canvas, I'm keeping this one to hang on my wall.

acrylic on paper 11"x14"

I loved painting this, capturing the vibrancy and the detail. This was from a book, with step by step instructions, so I could learn to better represent light and distance. This one took a long time to finish - four sittings, across six weeks, and I got in a hurry at the last sitting, so the foreground bushes don't look that good, but you know they're bushes and you know they're in the foreground, so what the heck! I signed it and called it done.
