Daily Painting Practice- Completed Northwoods painting - Loon's Lullaby

I  actually signed it! You all may be bored with me posting about this painting but I finally  can call it  finished.

While we were on vacation we  stopped at the  Portland Museum of art in Portland Maine.  What a great small  museum.  Dedicated to mostly American artists,  I was able to  study a painting,Mt. Katahdin from Millinocket Camp, by Frederic Edwin Church. Seeing the way  he handled  the light on the trees really helped me finish this painting.

So, one completed and another one on the way.  Here is the latest progress on my  painting of the Phillips Mill Inn.
