Pin It
Reflections, Oil, 8" x 10"
This painting is for sale.
I just finished this painting about 15 minutes ago, in fact I see that I still have paint on my fingers! I started it last night, but ended up scraping the paint off the entire canvas. Sometimes when I work with the palette knife, I end up working the painting too much and it turns out muddy. That is where I was last night when I did the "big scrape". I am happier with it today but I think I will try to paint it again sometime in the future. I left out so much of the detail in the water - there were waves everywhere - but it was just too busy.

Thanks Marian. The photo is not family ... I mean ... there is a girl in this painting! Just kidding, but all my family photos are boys and sports!
