I feel like this is my first painting. The only ones I'd tried before this were very much in the style of Bob Ross but with this one I decided to slow things down and take it a bit more seriously.
Oil on canvas, 16" x 20"

I like what you said. Bob Ross's style is for mass production. Really great painting takes time and focus. This is a great work.

Steve James I believe you have found your calling. Your paintings are truly phenomenal. I have a family member that I'm going to contact, that runs in the museum circles, so maybe she knows artsy people too.

Would love to see your work in a gallery :biggrin::biggrin:

Leighann you are too kind. It would be really nice to let people see my paintings. At the moment they're gathering dust stacked up against the wall. :-(

I contacted my husbands cousin, and sent her pics of your paintings, so we will see if she might know anyone to help market your paintings.
She is a museum curator, and a Navy wife, so they aren't in one place too long. I think right now they are in Pennsylvania somewhere.

Wow, thanks a lot Leighann, I really appreciate it. I'll post another one in a minute.

You're welcome.
She may not be able to help, but she is the only person I could think of. :wink:

Never painted in oils but that's a terrific work. Got lots going for it, impact, colour, focus and great detail. Well done indeed.
