Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.

You will definitely have to click on this painting to see the details. The deer are almost camouflaged as they are in real nature and if you look at the lower bottom between the lily pads, you will see an alligator swimming toward them. True to wildlife in Florida!
In fact, there is a small canal on one side of my property and I often hear 2 different alligators "grunting". They make a sound sort of like a pig grunting. Needless to say, I don't walk near that wild section of the property, but I mow near there but on the mower, I am safe! It seems that blues often look so much brighter in photos than they are in the painting. The colors are a bit more subtle in the painting than here. I think the painting is really nicer.
Your comments are welcome.
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
