Conventional and Not So Much

Two of my latest paintings: New idea: Paint one conventional painting and one with my own imagination. Thus, everyone could be happy. As I have a few collectors who love the conventional paintings of local scenery and then, a lot of friends who just want me to paint my own wild and colorful stuff.
The canvases are the same size and took about as long to paint.
Realism is a challenge and maybe some of my art spirit shines through; maybe not; for the beach camping painting.
Next I may try the same scene in two ways. To render it realistically and to create it with imagination.

  1. Shelby, I think both of these paintings are beautiful and well done. However, I tend to lean toward your open free spirit colorful wild paintings. The 2nd one would be my pick. Love it.
    But, your talent shines through on both of them. Bottom line ~ you are a really good painter!!!!
