EArly spring 8" x 8" oil

We are having a wonderful early spring with summer temperature no less! Sat. It was 77 degrees so I did my first plein air painting of the season in my backyard. Fun, fun, fun. The weather is suppose to hold all week so maybe I'll get in a few more small paintings.

Christmas Sampler 36" x 36" oil

Well I think I'm done. Just wanted to share - it's not even dry and I couldn't take a good photo outside because of the rain- but I am so glad it's done. There is a little glare showing by the three oranges but just pretend it's not there I'll repost with a better pic later. I really had to push myself to finish up all the little detail/spots that were needing to be cleaned up. This was hard because I am so used to painting and finishing in a few hours. I still might make one more change to the white stocking.  Not sure.... gotta live with it for a few days. So next is the second in the series on spring.
