The photo below is from the first posting of this painting. It has been sitting on my easel for a couple of weeks now, staring at me. This is a good thing as it gives me time to look at the painting casually as I go through my day. I realized that I did not have a reflection of the seagull, so have added that and also did some adjusting to some areas that were bothering me. Also, this is a better photo than the one below. I THINK I am calling it finished.
Oil on stretched canvas
40 x 30 x 2 inches

This is why I have not posted in a while. I have been working on this large painting and it is one that is a change from my usual subject matter, so it has been a learning experience for me. It will be sitting on my easel in line of sight in my main living area, so I will be looking at it and likely get the urge to do some tweaking on it.
This was painted from a photograph. The setting is the east coast in North Carolina.

Carrie and I went to a painting workshop together and this is the painting that we did. It is done in acrylics. I do mostly oils so this was some practice in acrylics and also a reminder of why I prefer oils. Painters will know, but if you are unaware what they say about acrylics - "The good thing about acrylics is that they dry fast. The bad thing about acrylics is that they dry fast". :-/
This painting is available at this time, as is. OR in a while I plan to "edit" it with some oils, after I finish a commission that I am working on now.

Other than some tiny accent birds, this is my first real bird painting. My daughter Carrie picked out this painting for us to do. That would be Carrie, four of the kids and me. Sue was with us also. We do painting for some of their schooling. Three of the kids that did this one were pretty new. One has been a regular and she has made very good progress. it is interesting to see the different styles that each person has.
Below are all of the groups paintings together, except Sue. She had to leave and we didn't get a picture of hers, but she did a very good job!
