Two Stellas

Two Stellas
6x6 Oil on panel

 My Stella d'Oros are blooming like crazy right now and this is a little study from my garden. I painted this a couple nights ago from my deck.and while out there I met my new neighbor and his young daughter. He mentioned that he had some raccoons removed from around his house and that I should watch out for them on the move. I told him I have had several families living under my deck over the years. He said they had a family of four. And I told him more stories and then he told me about his family of four...his kids. whoops! I'm sure I've made a great first impression in my painting clothes, paint on my face and hands and unable to follow a conversation. Ah, well...
I must retract my unhappiness with my Gamblin paints - my mistake - it was a different brand. Sorry Gamblin!
