Little Landscape

And here's the little landscape, from a summer photo of Lake Hollowell in Olney, a tiny and peaceful residential pond, nice place to paint, except of course, no bathrooms. Gotta find a large bush in that case. But there were a lot of geese, even a heron there on a couple of occasions this summer. They make the oddest sounds, or maybe it was a crane? Really don't know, but it was a very cool bird. Anyhow, this is one of the five in five days paintings. I was needing a break from the desserts, but I want to try this one over with a larger brush and see if it comes out more loose and painterly. Glad you could stop by. Posted by Picasa

Oh Nel! I love this! It is so peaceful, your reflections are super and I honestly don't think you need to change a thing. It is quite painterly as is!!

Wow, this already looks very loose and painterly to me. I really envy and admire your facility with oil painting technique. The scene as painted is just lovely.

Hi all. Thanks for the comments. The sizes are small, the landscape and the eclair are 8 by 10, and the two cupcakes and large pie slice are only 5 by 7. Tiny, but that seems to be the trend with daily painting.

This is a beautiful painting - loose, but loaded with atmosphere. You can just smell the summer air. Wonderful work - keep it up, please. You dessert paintings are lovely as well.

Hi Nel, I'm a "once-in-a-whiler" at EDM and saw the link to your blog in the daily emails. Wow, what wonderful little paintings these are! You should keep going and post them to eBay; someone who does "A Painting a Day," is doing that, and I think he's making a killin'. Thanks for posting these, they're really quite lovely...I've added you to my blogroll.
