12X12 Oil on Canvas. Not finished, but thought I would share. Weird shadows coming out of the deeper part of this river valley gave a strong juxtaposition from the riffle water you see further up the mountain. Weird, but I painted what I saw;

Great painting! Always paint what you see, even if it is not what you see:rolleyes:.

Have you ever tried finger painting some of your scenes. It can make them look more abstract; but, I like the free-feeling effect.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks! Yeah, I have experimented with it but haven't tried finger painting in a while. Still finding my painting legs. :biggrin:

Thanks, GM. :smile: just have to finish the boulders and add some varnish...oil paint takes days to dry though.

Excellent Job BlueRaiderFan! Do not forget to sign it. If you give one as a gift. Always write a special message on the back to the receiver. Also, I think you should title your picture or give it a name-explaining your interpretation:smile: I am not art expert; but, I enjoy these things in paintings and I always cherish paintings from friends.

Keep up the good work bud! I am sure that is a great release and a wonderful relaxation method. I have always wanted to try it...

Thanks! Yeah, I love to paint. I think I am going to stick with it too. Anyone that is somewhat regular on this board can get a super special price on any of my work too. A story about signing; I sent one to Bob and Lisa White as a gift for him answering all of my questions. I signed it on the back and left a note on the back of the canvas as well but DID NOT SIGN THE FRONT! DOH! Since I signed the back he said he would keep it and they have it hanging on their kitchen wall. It's the painting that I am using as my avatar ("Pheasant Tail"). :redface: Thanks again for your kind words.
