I usually paint pictures to stir the imagination like my unicorn painting called "Midnight's Journey": Midnight's journey
or the painting I did of my twin sister and I from a comment my mom made long ago about us being as different as the sun and moon:
Lately however, I decided to try some landscape paintings. I never liked landscapes. They didn't work for me; they didn't excite me. But there were some photos I really wanted to paint. One was of my son when he was two, walking down a dirt road on a foggy day. You can see it here: "Exploring His Limits"
The other was from our trip to New England a couple of years ago. I had always dreamed of visiting New England in the Fall. It was beautiful and we got to go with friends - so much fun!
|Our husbands opted not to be in the picture.|
The scenery was spectacular - we don't get Fall color here like up there. I took lots and lots of pictures.
One was of a small covered bridge in New Hampshire.
I've been wanting to paint it and finally decided to do it - I started on it in February and it is finally done:
It is 16"x 20", oil on canvas. What do you think? It's not the best photo of it as it's a little washed out; I forgot to fix that when I edited it. oops!
I also did a watercolor painting of a red sail boat from this same trip. To view it and my other paintings, you can visit my website at www.ceciliabramhall.com.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my art. We're off to the farm this weekend. Stay tuned for the dresser reveal!
Creating beautiful things,
