A couple of paintings I prepared earlier...

Here's a sample of them, two that are finished and which I'm almost satisfied with, click on the images to embiggen em.

Actually, the scenery one isn't quite finished, the rocky cliffs need a touch and the billabong in the foreground needs a tweak..as do the trees...and the clouds need a dash of white...and....and....

I'll never threaten Picasso, Renoir, Tom Roberts or Drysdale but it makes me happy.

Making you happy is the main priority it is true. But they are beautiful and inspiring for others which is also a wonderful bonus. Thank you.

I admire anyone who can paint. Love the landscape, and your first one reminds me of aboriginal art. Love that you are able to put paint to canvas and be creative.

I don't mind the landscape. Good effort.

I like the scenery one, but I don't understand dot paintings. I've een quite a few, and read the description of what thye're meant to represent, but I've never been able to "see" it. I guess it has to be "in" you. I do like a lot of them, the colours are lovely. I'm glad you're painting, it's a wonderful way to express feelings, emotions.

River, I never understood dot paintings either until I found something a little like a visual dictionary. Now they make sense, but if I were inclined to buy one it would be because it is pleasing to the eye rather than anything else.

One interesting site with some insights is at http://www.aboriginalartstore.com.au/aboriginal-art-culture/aboriginal-symbols-and-their-m.php

Jayne, there is something about the landscape which suggests a story...

Aha! But think of all the people (like me, for one) whom that FAAAABULOUS art WILL threaten!!!

I love 'em both and was toying with doing a few 'dotty ones' myself...... you've inspired me now!
