Jan, it looks like you're off to a great start! Are you working from a photograph? If so, it'd be interesting to see the difference between the photo and your painting once it is complete. I always find an artist's impression brings greater depth to a scene than most photos. BTW, I found your blog through LinkedIn. You can read my artblog at

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for stopping by! This is not from a photo. I've painted outdoors for so many years in the marshes near my home that when I want to do a studio painting I can just work from memory. Memory is a wonderful filter allowing you to be free from specifics and get to the heart of the scene. This piece has gone through a metamorphsis in the last 2 days. I'll have a new photo and post later on today. I'll visit your profile at LinkedIn and your blog.
