The Thames at Westminster (After Monet)

What was I thinking when I chose this painting as this months challenge on Karen d'Angeac Mihm's paintingfromthemasters.blogspot.com/    
The Thames at Westminster (after Monet )
Oil on paper specially made for oils.


 
I picked this painting because I thought it would be easy!! This is my fourth attempt,and because time has nearly run out on this challenge I decided to go ahead and post it.

Follow That Dream

I look at roses and I can't help myself ..I have to paint them.Each rose presents a different challenge that is irresistable.I have a simple trick to make them last as long as possible,I cut the stems shorter and shorter and this revives them and lengthens their life.

This particular rose was pointing forward as if to say ...follow that dream.Keep going my friends ,if art is in your soul,you have to paint,there is no question about it.

My dear artist friends....can you feel another question coming on???  I would love to know what music you listen to when you paint,if any. I love all sorts of music and today I heard this in the car...it just blew me away,I felt like I could be floating on a cloud listening to this........Alt-J - Something Good

Purple Tulips II

Purple Tulips II
8"x8"
SOLD
One of my very nice collectors asked me to paint another purple tulip painting as she missed the auction on DPW, its very similar but not exactly the same.This is the style that I enjoy painting in the most,very loose and with lots of artistic license. : )


Ever the economist, I now have a bunch of tulips still going strong and a whole lot of paint in various shades of purple already mixed and waiting to be used.


Thankyou so much for all your comments,I particularly loved everyones comments about their hopes and dreams.
