this is one of my best sellers...the old the desert usually, inspired by our many trips down the Baja.  I have painted my husband, Bob, quite a few and someone always falls in love with them and I sell them out from under him.  So now that we are in Kelowna he thought he would like one in the trees...once again...this one is for "bob?". 

I wanted to save my steps in painting here they three...and a few more days to go till I am done.  Will post as I go

Day four..not sure where I am going with this but so far I am seeing some potential here...I am enjoying the colors

Day 5

I started out with the idea of  leaves on the top..but now that the bottom is done I feel it is busy enough and it would be too much..will give it a few days of thought, but I think I am close to being done

I started out with a whole different idea in my head, but then my paint bruch takes over and it is always fun to see where it will end.

Had a fellow painter over today, and we spent some time critiquing this ...and I am feeling as if it coming together, not ready to sign it yet...but closer

This sat on my wall for a few years, I just recently pulled it down and "finished" it.  It needed some highlights and the background needed more work as well as some of the birch trees...added a few.  I really am happy with it now.
