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.
