To the right is my oil painting "Blooming Chamisa" on 10"x8" canvas and
my submission/rendering of Challenge B. I can see a bit of improvement in my painting as I've always struggled with certain parts of paintings, in this one I feel like I did get the essence of the chamisa and am happy about that. I've also always wanted to "learn to do impressionistic painting" and sometimes feel like I miss the mark though a comment by another artist friend was about this being a beautiful example of impressionistic painting. What a wonderful compliment and it helped me to make one of my first postings in the impressionist painting page on Facebook. A little at a time I am finding the encouragement, support and inspiration I need to enjoy the artistic life that I have begun living.
