This painting is from a photo I took a while ago. I started with the background and then asked my oldest daughter what I should do with it. She suggested the trees, and here it is, part of it, anyway.
This second project was actually supposed to be a back-up plan for a small talent show at our church. Each year they have a kid's talent show, and this year not many signed up beforehand. The youth leader asked if I could do a quick painting or something in case they did not have enough participation. They had enough acts, but I plan to work on this and see what comes of it.
