I'm painting again

My two grown children have been harrassing me for years to start painting and sketching again.  Because of that, after we purchsed this house that we are renovating, I decided to do some original art to hang.  Yesterday I was at Hobbly Lobby looking for an easel when my son called from Germany. He was ecstatic that i was actually buying an easel.  I came home and began working on my first painting in years....It was great getting back to a love that I've had buried inside me for too long...

I still have a bit of touch up to do, and I need to sign it, but this is what I have done so far.

Here is a close up of the bottom of the painting.  I used paint from the can I used to paint my living room for the back ground.  It's called Sparkling Lake and I love the color!  I will hang this picture in the kitchen to bring the red from the dining room and the Sparkling Lake colors into the kitchen...and tie it all together better.  Thanks for looking!
