I Love Paint Party Friday

I have done more work
 on this Oil Painting
You may remember it
 from a previous post

 Do you see any changes ?

I have about five paintings in a semi-finished 
and semi-dry state right now

Do you think this one is finished ?

 This is the painting a week ago

...And this is the same painting today
a little more going on
So what do you think ?
Do you prefer the before 
...or the after
I am just wondering
Be truthful and let me know
I won't have my feelings hurt ...no matter what 
I know everyone has different likings
 and a different way to achieve what they want in art

Are you a photographer ?
Are you an art lover ?
Are you an artist ?

I recently joined the " Red Bubble " art site
It is all free
... and so far
I like it a lot
I ordered some sample stuff to check their quality
 and I am very happy with the prices 
and the quality of the cards and prints
It is a fun place and lots of very nice artists 
to converse with also
this is the link to get to my Red Bubble page
Check it out if you have a minute or two ... Thanks!

come see all the wonderful art work at 
Paint  Party Friday  !! You will enjoy

I like both before and after pictures. The soft color and the texture makes it look like sugar :o)
Happy PPF

Tammie Lee said...

wonderful to see all your paintings

i am leaning towards the finished painting, but i like the before as well, they are each quite different.

I'm quite entranced with your birch trees leaning against your door...Lovely! I have a birch tree right outside my studio window so this painting caught my eye immediately. Your birds are lovely too! Happy PPF! Robin Panzer Art Studio 33

Oh I love the bird painting... the extra flowers seem to mute the birds a bit more, however it's lovely. Happy PPF!

NatashaMay said...

Wonderful! I love the colors and how busy the paintings feel. :)

Lesley Edmonds said...

I like after but all your art is just lovely. I particularly like the painting of the trees stood against your door - wonderful.

Netty said...

Loving your beautiful paintings. Happy PPF and have a great weekend, Annette x

WrightStuff said...

Your bird paintings have a Renoir feel about them - they are truly beautiful. I enjoyed my browse around your store!

NanaDiana said...

I think I like the after better. It has an airier feeling. The colors are just wonderful. I am still loving that birch tree painting, too! xo Diana

TexWisGirl said...

i like the after version. i like how the birds almost blend into the leaves and trees.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I like the added details! And I consider myself a little of everything...I enjoy it all! ♥

Debbie said...

Your paintings have a beautiful impressionistic feel to them. Great job! I especially love the look of the tree painting. Your birds are looking good, too. Some more contrast in value might help to create a focal point for the birds...if that's what you're aiming for.

Mary C. Nasser said...

Woo-hoo! Isn't it fun working on multiple paintings!!
You know I am a huge fan of your nature paintings and their luscious textures!!
Going to look at Red Bubble, too. :)
Happy PPF!!

Hello Kat, your painting is really something, the textures, colours, detail. I would probably add a dash of something bright like reds and orange tones to spice it up a bit, it would show off the blue tones wonderfully. Thanks for sharing with us and have a great week-end!

RainCityGirl said...

Thanks for the Red Bubble info. I've been tossing around what to do. Your paintings are great. I have to say I like the bird one from a week ago a little better. They were to focus then and seem to have gotten a bit lost in all that leafy goodness you painted in this past week. Both are lovely. Happy PPF

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

I like the many versions ~ last one I think I like best ~ very close all of them ~ love your style ~thanks, namaste, ^_^

Sadee Schilling said...

Oh, the color and texture is so delicious it makes me think of frosting on a cake. I prefer the after--adding the white gives it a little something "extra." Maybe the birds could "pop" just a little more? This painting is just gorgeous! Happy PPF --Sadee @ a Picturebook Life

What I find amazing is that the addition (or subtraction) of colors and background completely changes the tone of the painting in each version. You'd swear they were separate paintings in a series instead of one going through different versions. I'd be hard pressed to say which appeals to me more.

Sabina said...

I honestly love the painting both ways. And I especially love that you didn't change that the birds blend into the background so you have to look for them.

Heather said...

I love them either way! I think they are both beautiful!!! Happy PPF!

Anne said...

I like really them both, it's a beautiful painting, but I like the top photograph of the post most! There it looks like the sun is just almost peeking from the clouds, and I think it is a great effect.

EVA said...

The difference seems to me to be that you added more white highlights? And I like that. It was beautiful before too but I thinks the highlights add to it.

The others are looking great as well!

JKW said...

It looks finished, I love it the way it is, but it is your interpretation that makes it what it is/will be. We will then see it though our eyes and enjoy it. Blessings, Janet PPF

Love the before and after pictures of the flower/bird painting! That tree one with the leaves is perfect:) You are a very talented painter! I wish I had a talent like this.
