OK, OK, It's Not Finished, but ....

MANY glazes of background later
   I have been an admirer of Jacqueline Gnott's work for as long as I've had a computer [about 3 years] She paints the most phenomenal watercolors and oils of flowers and still-lifes. As is my way, I try to figure out what is being done by studying a painting, and then experimenting. I think I finally have found a way to create the effect of light filtering through leaves. What do you think???

Bruno's Gardening Day ... or ... Yes, I Pamper My Horse

Munching at the top of the rise
Looking down to Bruno's paddock/ring & to field beyond
Standing by a spot where I grow lupines, lilies, irises, calendula and others
Really getting into his work
Some serious trimming at the fence-line
Taking a short, thoughtful break
   Brunz has had 3 or 4 days of good, solid work; our riding sessions have been short and sweet, [pretty much] and he has been attentive. As I like to say, he's been wearing his "listening ears"! So I thought a bit of grazing on the back lawn would be nice - the grass IS greener on the other side of the fence.
