Into Spring

"Spring Oak"
6"x6" Oil on panel
Another small painting on 6"x6" panel. I really like how this one turned out. I feel I'm getting much better at painting flowers and the plants beneath them. It's easy to get that floating look so it really benefits an artist to work a little on the plant underneath these flowers. I'm working on that, hahaha. It's always great to work on things in your work and I think this painting has taught me a lot...so success!

Hi Mick - Thanks a lot buddy. I'm glad you had such a great time on your vacation and came back with added inspiration!

Hi Marian - There's really no secrets and probably much easier than you would think. I've looked at others work and though "how the heck did they do that!?"...then when you see them do it it is much easier than you had thought. You're a great painter yourself Marian!
