getting my feet wet

It's been awhile since I painted any landscapes (and intend to do more) so today I did a little 8" x 10" panel and used iridescent pearl to give the lacy bits a glow. I've added it here.

I love your use of color. At first I wondered how you created a link to another window but realized its a separate blog. I've been thinking about doing that. The moth series is especially wonderful!

Gorgeous. Love the green and yellow against that blue in the background, with the tree branches poking all around...

Wet feet need careful drying... don't want you to get foot rot!

Love the idea of iridescent pearl on those twigs.

Vickie: let me know how it goes if you give it a try! So far mine is doing zero business and getting about 4 hits/day. Maybe a bad idea for me?

Angela: I want to paint more. Stupid %^?!@# rest of my life getting in the way!

WW: *blush*

Caro: Too late! Oh wait. That's brain rot that I have.

Peter: *blush* again

Really interesting painting -- has a sort of wintery, frozen, nighttime moonlit look to it. Glad to see you getting a chance to paint even if it's a little one.

I'm so glad your comment led me here, Andrea there is so much to admire. I love the jewel like colours looking up through these branches. I have some mother of pearl pigment, unused. I think I'd better try it now!

Your moths are gorgeous.

Nice, Andrea - I don't think you're out of practice at all. You do have an amazing way with color!

Jana: Thanks -- and I need more tiem as I'm not getting far lately...

Robyn: I love the pearlescent paints if used sparingly! (And thanks for visiting.)

Cynthia: Me love colour. You're a peach.

I love iridescent/pearlized pigments. And glitter. And metallic 'dust'. Sparklies. Since all I ever seem to do is for reproduction I never get to use them. (pouting now). Need a good venue to justify I guess.

btw - I've been listening to your "Thrasher" CD in the car all week (now that I can actually *leave my house* and drive around occasionally). Love it more than ever.
