My husband gave me the best compliment on this one: “Wow, it looks like I could just walk right into the painting!” 

Love that man o’ mine.

Here’s the painting I did of this same location five years ago:


Interesting to see how my style has changed!

Lots more depth in this one. . .more varied light. It's great to see the progression in your work. . .leaves hope for me. Brilliant!

I would seriously love a workshop. . .hint hint!

I wonder if there is anyway you could hold a virtual workshop? Like on a private blog, where only people you invite could come in. I would pay for that too. But alas in person would be the best.

Wow, love this and how your stle has changed too but both are great.

Question for you, if I may, how did you get this photo of your art, looking so flat when so big? Do you have a massive scanner, get everything professionally scanned or photographed it with your camera then adjusted perspective?

I ask b/c I'd like to paint some bigger pics but my scanner is too small for anything over legal size.

Love your style.
