New Painting Idea - Greek Taverna

Hi everyone, it has been sometime since I had a chance to do any work in my studio. I have been busy with several art submissions and enjoying the beautiful early spring weather we have been having.

I have prepared a rough little sketch of a Greek Taverna composition I plan on painting in the next coming days. It will be done on a 30 x 30 cm canvas the same as my Paris Bistro painting. I plan on doing a little series of these "country" specific restaurant scenes. Next one will be Italy.

And my My little Boo is 10 months old today! Growing so fast! She loves her shoes like her auntie Lisa! A real little girly girl!

Spring is in the Air - Latest painting

Hi Everyone, the weather has been gorgeous here in Eastern Ontario and the snow is melting quickly away. We have been having sun all week with temperatures hitting 7 degrees celsius.

I managed to finish my bird painting and I am really feeling spring is around the corner. It took me roughly 30 hours to finish this painting and I am pleased with the results. I decided to do the sunset background. I enjoyed this painting and it is the first time I paint birds. It was a nice change.
