Just paint

If I want to get better at painting, I need to paint more.  Today I did a quick "no think, just do" tree scene.

There.  Now I need to keep the ball rolling.

Tufted Titmouse

Our birdfeeder has been getting a lot of business this spring.  The Tufted Titmouse is a repeat customer.  He's so round and cute.

I painted over an old painting, which made it turn out kind of lumpy.    Could be better, but I got bored fast, so I'm moving on.

Dollar Store Landscape

I love the dollar store.   The Dollar Tree keeps me stocked with dog poop bags, candles, and cute notepads.  Last fall I got a bunch of sweet calendars, including a "Landscapes" one.  Today I painted August's landscape.

Dollar store calendars do not provide photo credits or locations.   Could be California, or France...
I pretended I was Monet painting the Manneporte near Etretat. Too bad it's not as good.

Edited to update!...
I think I painted the Durdle Door in England.  That is a fabulous name and now I love it even more.
