I'm back! I haven't been posting to my blog recently since my internet connection was acting up. That was actually a good thing since I had more time to finish some new (and not so new) paintings. The second painting, Water Garden, took me almost two years to finish. I started working on it about the time I opened my studio, Painting Paradise, but then put it away to work on other projects. I recently found it in a corner of my studio and made it a priority. I finished it this week, but had some paint left over (I don't like to waste good paint :-) so, I thought I would get out another piece of canvas and work on a new painting, Rhythm of the Ocean, below. Surprisingly, I completed it in one day! It just goes to show you that a painting may take anywhere from two years to one day! You just never know. Hope you enjoy them both!
