Inspire Me Thursday -- Paints


Although this isn't a newly created painting, I decided to enter it in this week's challenge anyway. Typically, I paint interesting(to me) architecture using watercolors, but I wanted to try a landscape using oil to challenge myself. What I wanted to convey to viewers with this painting was a feeling of peace and tranquility and a little mystery. When I look at this piece I can feel the foggy mist against my face and I can smell the Spruce and Pine trees that gather on the shore. This painting is titled "Hush" and measures 24"x36" on stretched canvas.
