The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Postcard from Burnetteville

This is a 9"x12" quick study from the landscape in my head, no reference, done with a painting knife. Yes, the buildings are a bit wonky, but so am I. What a great way to relax after a busy day. I had paint halfway to my elbows after this one. I'd like to do more imagination pieces, focusing on areas I'd like to improve. Really like the way the sky turns out when done with a knife.


  1. Hey Monica! I like your painting. I like these buildings you add. Nice composition and love the perspective. You make me laugh with the thought of you with paint up to your elbows. I posted you a pic of some greens on my blog complete with a couple of sky holes. It will make you go blind looking at the lines. :)

  2. Hello, Monica, and thanks for visiting my blog.
    I like your blog and good luck with your landscape journey.
