Works In Progress

I have been lazy about blogging; but in between other things in life I have been painting.
At the moment I am working on two- 12 x 16 inch canvases for a lady.  She loves Pansies and asked me if I could paint some for her.  I am enjoying doing them as I have never done Pansies before so I started another bigger one just for the heck of it.  I haven't gotten far enough along on that one to show anything; but here are the other two for the customer.

Pansies 1 & 2, oil on  canvas, 12 x 16 inches.

Wild Roses

Today I noticed a lovely photo on a site that I watch.  I messaged the photographer, Colleen Fink, asking for her permission to use her photo as a reference.  She graciously told me that I could.
My painting does not do her photo justice; but I really enjoyed doing it.  I love the wild roses, they are tough and resilient and smell wonderful and even give you colour in the winter with their red rose hips.
I looked at it for a few days and decided that I didn't like it, so I reworked it a bit.
