This is a much better photo than the last. I finished the starry night and even added a shooting star. I'm thinking the bottom area is missing something, maybe another branch. I thought about adding a black crow but my daughter made a face, that's what I get from talking out loud.

15"x30" oil on canvas - in progress
This has been a fun painting to paint. I'm very pleased with it's outcome so far...almost done. I was reallly scared to add those branches, but once I started the transformation was amazing to see. Yesterday I started to add the stars. Almost done.

I'm still working on my tree and commission piece, but I bought some sunflowers the other day and well, decided to do a quick painting of them. I like how they turned out. I've also started another painting of wine bottles. I like to have many paintings started as I get to choose which one I want to work on and when that painting needs to dry I grab another one. And if I'm not in the mood to do any of the ones I started, well I'll start another. Of course, sometimes a painting will sit for a long time and I'll revisit it and it turns out great. Enjoy!

I recently started this painting of a cool tree I took a picture of when I lived in Northern California. I've been wanting to paint it and well finally just went for it. I always see a finished version of my paintings, so this one has been challenging me. I want to get real detailed but yet I love how it looks loose. I would love another artists' opinion...thanks!
I've also been working on another commission piece but wasn't too sure about posting it. I need to ask permission just in case...don't want to spoil a surprise! I also have started a sunflower painting; they so sunny and bright and let's not forget how long they last in a vase.
