"What are you painting?" --- Sold

I went to the Ft. Worth Botanical Garden last weekend and participated in the Camp Fire USA paint-out. I really enjoyed two days plein air painting. This one is my quick draw piece. I have not fully developed my plein air skills yet, but I surely enjoyed this event. I met quite a few very good plein air artists this time and learned a lot. This painting is not bad, I started to have some feeling about plein air paintings. It is good to have a change.

I really like the looseness of this one. And, yes, it is good to have a change.

It is natural for talented artists to have mixed feelings about the quality of their respective works. I've taken to putting up good and bad results on my own blog in the hope it will help others through this thick and thin life of plein air painting. Well done, you're great.

I like the brush strokes. Really nice. The quick draws are energizing.

There is something VERY special about this painting! The economy of brush strokes in an otherwise "busy" scene is what draws me into the focal pt. Really beautifully done, Bravo!

I think your skills are better than you think they are. This is beautifully ALIVE!
