More painting that was given as Christmas gifts.

 The whole month of November and the beginning of December I was painting almost every night creating these arylic paintings.  It was a challenge.  I think for only being a beginner painter. I did pretty good.

Fleur de lis painting

Welcome to 2011 ... can you believe that already we have had 21 full days in 2011 .. Time seems to be moving rather quickly these days.  Well this morning I woke up in a creative mood.  Finished putting on details of a picture that I started on Wednesday night. Then I started a 2nd picture of a fleur de lis and finished that in about 2-1/2 hours, now I am working on a 3rd picture which is halfway finished.
