Things are coming together!



Here is a photo of my lovely Aunt Agnes (87!) holding my painting to enable me to take the photograph below.

I love this stage in painting when you get to a point when all your hard work starts to look finished. I have about nine paintings cluttering up my Dad's washroom all nearly at their finished state.

Besides doing the birds for the show on Sanibel Island I have been painting a few landscapes too! This is the first one to get finished.

Aunt Agnes looks delightful, and so does your painting - can't wait to see the others too.

She is Katherine, very precious.

Oh such a lovely painting Lynne, I love the softness of this, it is very calming...easy on the eye.

Isn't it a wonderful feeling when you near completion...and it is just that, just a feeling, you suddenley just 'know'.

Thank you for sharing, your Aunt looks wonderfully jolly too!

Another beauty.
Both: painting, and spirited, precious, Aunt Agnes.

Thanks Julia! Yes, you are so right about that, I have been working on the Nightingale painting and just wasn't quite happy and after yesterday, I tweaked it and now I feel it's done.. you just know. Yes, my Aunt is precious. She has spent a lifetime spoiling me! Lurvelly! Will write an email..

Thanks Loriann. Enjoyed your interview of Deborah by the way.

Hello Aunt Agnes! Thanks for your blog visit, Lynne. This is a really nice painting. I like that you do realism but not photorealism; the paintings have a dreamy quality to them.

Lynne E. Windsor said...

Thanks Jala... you have hit the nail on the head.. it's what I am trying to do! Are you in India?

Deborah Paris said...

Your Aunt Agnes looks wonderful and very happy to be your assistant!

Taking my first go at the etching plate tomorrow...feeling very nervous!

Lynne E. Windsor said...

Yes, she is Deborah... but has difficulty holding the panels! Go for it Deborah. One of the beauties of having a press at home is that you are free to play more. I am SO SO jealous. I really miss etching.
