Wonderful painting Steve James

Sometimes when I am on this forum, I dream I can create pieces even half as good as some of you guys do. A painter I am not, but maybe in my next life. :biggrin:

Thanks Leighann

Have you tried oils? looking at your art you clearly have the talent. I'd love to see what you could do.

Really?? I just don't know. My mom used to do tole painting when I was a kid, and she was wonderful at it, but every time I try any type of painting I am just horrible at it.

What would I paint? I will think about it :wink:

Man oh man that is just outstandingly good, the best I've seen you do, and that's saying something.

That's my most recent one, so hopefully I'm still improving. I did this one to try to force myself to use a lot of greens as I normally avoid that colour if at all possible.

Thanks Suddenlife, at least I managed to stop myself turning the greens to mud, which always seems to be a temptation for me.

It's beautiful, the colors are so crisp and sharp.
