This is from a picture I took while driving home from Work in Machias..I have painted the same view a few times before. I started with transparent washes, and everything was going great. Then the foreground gave me some trouble. I glazed the foreground several times trying to achieve the right tone and color, but I ended up with a muddy look. A piece of advise: Learn to stop!! I think I should have stopped when everythng was looking good. It still looks OK I think!!

We moved to a new house recently..Basically needed some more space. The house we were renting was very small for 2 dogs, a baby coming anytime soon, and a child running all over the place. So, between the move, and long hours at work, I have not been able to do any paintings!!! I am going to try to do one this weekend. Probably, people are getting tired from seeing my sad looking portrait!!
