I also paint. I have often felt the need to loosen up my style. Your renderings are very free and I hope by studying them I can learn to be less precise as well. I especially love the birds and have several bird pictures I want to paint this spring. Birds are such sweet and colorful creatures. I am inspired and enlightened by your work.

P.s. I also love the lambs

Dear Leslie,
Thank you so much for your kind comment. Maybe you can see that I love looseness in my paintings, and I lament when I get too tight, my natural inclination. I prefer impressionistic, symbolic, leave some guesswork to the viewer style. I would only say to you, paint your heart out. Make no serious judgments on your work that would limit your pathway through paint. Bless you and stay well!
