Joe's Cottage

Finding the right subject matter is tricky, when you are a
beginner.I cheated, here, and borrowed a photograph from my
talented instructor, Joe Lombardo. Not having to worry about the
composition,I concentrated on the painting, and, lo and behold,
two-and-a-halfhours later, I ended up with what I consider my
first successfulwork.  Successful, in thatI didn't wipe it or
throw it away.


  1. It's absolutely beautiful. I especially love the shadows from the trees. It makes me want to take a walk there!

  2. Thanks! I think the photo was taken somewhere in Michigan, so it would be a long, long walk.

  3. it's beautiful! I am LOVING your new landscapes and can't wait until you post them!!!!!! XO
