Mountain Spring 5"x7"

Was trying a looser, more colorful and whimsical approach with this one, painting quickly from an old photograph. Not very realistic and that's what I like about it - it starts with the framework of a typical landscape, yet has an air of fun and whimsy - though subtle. Seems cheerful. I may do more like this.

Absolutely do more like this. It's great! This size has allowed you to really look at the colors.
