Orange Lily

I was not feeling well today, but decided to tackle a small panel so I would not feel like I wasted the day. This has taught me that even on days when I do not feel very creative pushing to do one painting can produce surprising results. I am pleased with this one. There is just enough there to suggest the glass and the lily. I did not get fussy with it.

Lazy River in Stratford

I painted this plein air in Stratford Ontario. It was a hot and humid day and the river was real still.

Rainy Intersection

I painted this from a photo reference this past weekend while I exhibited at Art in the Park in Stratford Ontario.

Update on WIP

The picture is a little fuzzy, but I am almost finished with this one and thought I would share a sneak peak. I am at the stage where I need to decide how much more detail I will add. When I work larger I give myself more time to think about things before pushing further and it can lead to indecision and fear of messing it up. The only way to overcome that is to put  paint to canvas. Does anyone else encounter that?
