Cottage, Oil 8 X 10 My three grandsons

Hi there, I hope everyone had a nice Easter. I have a large family and it's always wild and crazy, I can't imagine it any other way. I painted this today. I got a book from the library on Constable and it's very similar to one in his book. I cropped it and changed a few things, I've always liked his paintings though some are a bit dark. I'm working on a large one, large for me 16 X 20. I'll be submitting two paintings in August for a juried show so the one I'm working on might be one of those. I've sold two paintings from the coffee shop, I'm pleased with that. See you soon. I threw in a picture of my three grandsons from yesterday for your viewing pleasure, no one would look at me but I thought it was cute. Barb

The little boys are adorable.
I just had my two little nephews visit me here in Florida and they are so sweet!
I like this painting. You can learn so much from painting copies.

Hi Mary, They are cute aren't they? I'm not partial or anything, lol.

Barbara! I found you via a comment you left on Karin Jurick's blog. I arrived at your blog to find your happy paintings and the wonderful photo of your grandboys. I'm a portrait painter who'd love a go at that photo, if you have no objection. And if you had a larger file of it....? No worries if it's a problem. Enjoyed visiting your world.
