Two Small Ones

I painted with a friend on Saturday and got these two done in about three hours. It was mostly cloudy for the first one, but the sun came out in the afternoon. Trust me to get the opportunity to paint in a beautiful arboretum (John F Kennedy Park) and just paint bluebells and a puddle!

I love these intimate slices of the landscape. You have made two exquisite little pieces. Your style is particularly effective in these little gems.

Thanks Mick. I have started to work larger for the more panoramic scenes, but I feel that this size of canvas really lends itself to close ups such as these.
