This is a little scene from Hampshire, England. No, I’ve never been to Hampshire but my fellow Instagramer, Ian Asher – @ianasher lives there and I asked his permission to use this photo as inspiration for my painting. If you have a minute you really should check out his feed – it’s full of captivating landscapes and nature photography.
This painting was actually a bit of a departure for me as I rarely paint buildings and it turned out much less stylized than my usual work but I think I like it. I am happy with the contrast and light play. (FYI – paintings always look so much better in person than in photos.)
Thanks again to Ian Asher for lending me his photo! 🙂
I recently traded in my old flip-out cell phone for a new iPhone – WOOHOO! Yes, I do realize that I’m almost a decade behind the rest of the world and yes, I am also rolling my eyes at myself. BUT, now I’m so connected that I can’t seem to get disconnected… EEP! Social media in the palm of your hand can be dangerously addictive! Ah well, maybe the novelty will wear off… eventually… 😉
That said I’m now obsessed with INSTAGRAM – I love photos and Instagram makes it easy and fun to share. So if you also love pics and feel inclined to get to know me better FOLLOW ME!
