view of skelton island

I took a commission over a year ago. A treasured view from a riverside property. It has been on my mind all year. How to do justice to such a clearly beautiful (especially at sunset), nostalgic view? I did numerous plein air paintings, many visits and lots of thinking. 14 months later, I am finally coming up with ideas. No one will ask me to do a commission when they see how glacially slow I am. And I haven't even begun to paint!!!!! Egad.

The top one reminds me of the strong color statements of the late great Mark Leach. A high complement in my book.

WOW Thanks Sam! I am ashamed to say that I honestly didn't know who he was. Thanks to you I now have ordered his book. He seems to have made quite a statement in his short life.
Thank you for your kind words.

These are lovely. I'm still trying to figure out how to paint a photo you commented on two years ago. One day it will hit me and off I'll go!

Anyone who knows your work knows it's worth waiting for. These are both beauties! I hope you'll enjoy Mark's book - I love it and he will always be such an inspiration.

Hi Jami! Thank you about my paintings. I will be certain to drop by your site very soon.

Hi Donna, thanks for the kind thought. I can't wait for Mark's book. I ordered it used from Amazon.
