My aunt paints pictures and has been trying for years to get me to try my hand at it. Well, I am now retired and have time to give it a go! This is one of my efforts!

Supposed to illustrate the 23rd Psalm. Those blobs at the front represent sheep!

This is supposed to be a bridge in our local park. I think I should stick to barns.

Thanks for your encouraging comments! Believe it or not, people have asked for three of these. They asked how much I would sell them for, but it's hard to think that someone would pay for my dabblings.

Sell them if they want to buy them! You have more talent than you think!

My aunt paints, and I've always admired her ability. Now that I've retired, I decided to do something way different--so I asked her to give me some pointers. I just dabble at it--no great technique! Thanks for your kind words!

I do love your paintings! I think you have inherited artistic ability! I could never paint like that. Sell them and enjoy painting more!

You definitely have inherited talent. On the first painting, the fence looks so real, and I love how you show a path that has been lightly trodden on the snow. Your shading technique is excellent. On another, you are able to bring the fir tree into pure clarity while leaving the others tress more muted.

This comes from an art lover with NO talent but deep appreciation. Keep painting!
