Oil on Canvas, 16" x 16"

Finding my feet, slowly .....................

Trying to learn to be patient, not only with the paint, but also with myself. Suffering from that one two steps forward, one step back but hoping that taking it slowly will bring greater rewards.

Trees as usual causing me heartache.

"Patience is the companion of wisdom."

Saint Augustine (354 AD - 430 AD)

That's a big painting Anita. I love the composition, gorgeous colours and the trees are excellent - I'm rubbish with trees in oils. More please :)

it's lovely - no need for heartache! it's very much 'you' but pushing the boundaries :>)

Beautiful, Anita! What's wrong with the trees? No fussy detail, none needed, IMO.

this picture is very cool

Anita said...

Not that big, Michael.

Thank you, Vivien!

Billie - you know how I feel about the detail thing - it's knowing when to stop that is hard.

canvas artwork - thank you!
