Maple Ave. Lake

This is the 6x8 oil I did from my Maple ave. sketches and photo. Really want to go back and paint this on location and try to capture various weather conditions.  Great fun.  Happy painting everyone.

  5. This is an outstanding landscape painting Joan. You should do a series of this location in different seasons! Beautiful work - good depth and colors.

  6. Hi Joan!... I'm back! Bad cold has retreated!I'm... "back in the saddle again!"

    I love this one for a variety of reasons Joan. A wonderfully accomplished rendering of the sky... lovely use of light and dark areas... anchored by those few birds/ducks/geese bits of interest scattered randomly in your foreground!

    A gem... that describes it perfectly Joan!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce
