Peaceful, Easy Feeling...

I think I may have mentioned once or twice about the great website Paint My Photo - well this is another picture which I did for the sketchbook project taken from a photo on there.  This is of Mesa Arch in Utah taken at sunrise by Diane R.  It's a beautiful photo which, when printed out on our printer to use as a reference, didn't show up nearly as clear as it does here (probably due to my lack of knowledge with printer settings) and that is my excuse for the lack of detail in my painting!!  The scene reminds me of The Eagles  - the cover of 'The Best of The Eagles' album has similar rocky rocks in the background hence today's title!!

Anyhow, I've gone back to the old faithful pointillism for this one although I have been inspired by the style of Patchwork Orange to create some Christmas card designs which I'm working on at the moment.  Failing any of them selling in my Folksy shop then friends and family can expect to receive them from me this year (I've just bought another 100 blank cards and envelopes so needs must!!)

  2. Thanks Sharon although I don't think they're ruins in the photo - it's a rocky canyon type place in Utah - Granted my painting is vague enough to look like ruins though!!
