Here's a large version of one I did in 8x8. I thought it would work well in my upcoming show. I've got a few of these to do now (larger versions of my small paintings) to get ready for the show. It's a good time for it, because my work schedule has been completely screwed up temporarily, and I can't count on any good painting time. So, although these re-dos still take work, they don't tax the creative part of my brain so much (which I just can't find time for right now).

I haven't totally decided on the red/brown border - might change to another color.
This scene is out my friend's kitchen window. She doesn't like the mega house that was just built behind her house, but I thought it could work well in a painting. In my paintings, it's all about what I choose to see. That's what's so great about painting!
I know it looks like I've been slacking off, but actually, I've been doing the opposite - cranking out lots of large paintings. It's just that the weather's been so bad I haven't been able to get out to get pictures of them. Today I finally got out to my picture taking spot so I can put them up here for perusal for the next week or so. I'm figuring that I need 20 paintings for this show I'm doing in May, so I just keep working, working, working... It's fun to have a goal like this.
