After Sunset

This is the other little painting I was talking about yesterday.It took me less than two hours to finish it.Actually I am not sure how much time it took.It could be even less than an hour.When I am inspired I don't pay attention to the time,it passes by so fast.I used my own reference photo I took by lake Winona a couple or three weeks ago.My daughter,a friend of my ,her little guest Angie and I went to the lake park for a walk and I took a bunch of exciting pictures which I am going to turn in paintings.The weather was wonderful and the trees were revealing their most beautiful colors.
The size of the painting is 5x7 on canvas board.And again I used oil paints.

Prairie Flowers

I started this little painting with oil paints a month ago.I did the underpainting and kind of got discouraged and quit.Last Monday I started a big painting about Tour de France for my husband.I did the underpainting and put it aside to dry.As the creative juices went on flowing I decided to finish this one too.I not only finished this one but also painted another one/I will post it the next time/.It was a great day!
This painting is a small one 5x7 on canvas board with oil paints.I've been getting very excited with the oil paints recently.I used my own photo of bouquet of wild flowers I picked by the bike trail last summer.
