Finished painting "Summer's Music" and Other things

Summer's Music 20x26 oil on linen
Thank you all so much for the nice comments on this painting!  Yeah.  I had thought about using it for my painting for the AWA show in Atlanta in October but I have one more idea for a larger piece that I might try first....this is the finish.  I've been looking at it for a while on my easel to make sure it's ok.  It's so hard for me to even know if I think it is show worthy amidst so many other wonderful paintings.  And of course to sell it would be nice.  :)  At any rate, thank you for the comments.  I added a couple more flowers because I felt the painting needed them on the right side above the pitcher.  It felt too bare there, in fact my husband mentioned that too so we were both thinking it.  But now I am thinking I might remove the blue plumbago on the sheet music but haven't decided yet.  I took this photo outside, inside, and all around trying to get the best color naturally.  Just so happens that one of Robert Genn's latest letters was on taking photos.  Here is the link if you would like to read that "clickback" of his on how to do that.  Thanks again all...and as always for visiting my blog!  Happy Trails!

Oh, if anyone is interested in a Clyde Aspevig book...check out the Autry Museum.  www.theautry.org. I found one that I thought was out of print, Elemental Solitude.  If you don't know who Clyde Aspevig is, well he taught Scott Christensen and Matt Smith.  Google him..you'll be amazed!  Click those links to see.

Have a blessed day!

PS  Back to painting a few small studies to finish my 50/50 project next week for a day or two.  :)
