Excellent!

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, all. :)

Skippy; Thank you! Yeah, I know I have to come up with a better subject line for these posts.

Beautiful with lone canoe and a bird in flight.
Paint more birds please! ;-)

Oh, I love this! Just as in photos, I love silhouettes against nice color. Simple, yet bold. Very nice! Damn, you're talented!! :o)

Chrissy said...

Love this Lana, it is just so summery and I am getting tired of grey skies.

Lovely painting.

Eat your heart out, Rousseau.

love this one, thx lana :D

Erik Donald France said...

For a while I could only see the top third and the rest was black which was eerie, a totally different take.

Complete, it's a lot more hopeful. Beautiful work!

Lana - you have an instinct for values and value contrast - well done! I posted a little summer too - but somehow I think I need it more!! 14 degrees would be May here...!

Lana Gramlich said...

Tabib; There's a second bird hidden in there, too. ;) (I will be painting more birds. I've just been in a time crunch, & I prefer to take my time with birds.)

Holly & laughingwolf; Thanks much. :)

Chrissy; I'm glad if this brought you a taste of what's to come & brightened your gray skies.

Ivan; You're too kind, as always!

Erik; I'm glad the whole thing came through for you. I was hoping to inspire happiness & peace with this one. :)

Michelle; Thanks much. I appreciate the input, particularly from someone with your talent! (BTW, it's 18C here today...Sorry.)

It took me a while, but I finally found that 2nd bird! Lovely painting, I really feel like I'm looking out from behind the trees! Another great painting!

JafaBrit's Art said...

wonderful Lana, I love seeing the landscape through the trees and I like how you broke up the space.

JR's Thumbprints said...

I saw the bird in the tree right away. Perhaps it's because you had me looking with your prompt. I had to zoom in to find the bird flying in the sky. Nice painting.
