New Painting, "Avocet & Queen Ann's Lace"

I just finished this painting this weekend. It's been staring at me for several weeks and finally I had an opportunity to finish it. It's always a satisfying feeling to finish a painting. I get excited to share it with people and to hang a new image in my art shows. Hope you all like it!

We have lots of queen ann's lace spotting our fields. I am drawn to this delicate wild weed and am excited to finally include it in one of my paintings.

Start with a background color. Something warm...Orange perhaps..

Living on the ocean, shore birds with long skinny legs elegantly waltz by... but something is still missing. Let's add some movement.

a couple of fluttering bugs...

add some color...
