Half Dome at Sunset

Oil on Canvas
I thought I should paint this on a small canvas to see if it worked out; if it did, I would paint it on a larger canvas. I think it looks ok, but it didn't WOW me. I may have to pull out my brushes if I try this one again, rather than just using my palette knife.

I wowed myself again! I love the way this looks in different lighting.

River Walk

Oil on Canvas
It seems a little messy, but I like the motion of the river and the general feel of the scene.

I love the colors and the depth of this painting. It's my new favorite!
I painted it for my friend Lilian, but I'm not sure I want to give it away
