With that said, I am ready to start doing some more serious paintings. The first is from a "Country Home" magazine cover (photo found on Pinterest, of course). I really loved the colors in this photo, and the feelings of "country" that it actually evoked in me. I am not a big fan of "country" anything, but something about it relaxes me-- country music and country style, not really sure why.
So, here is the painting that I will be working on for a while:

I'll still be doodling in my art journal and trying new things, but I would like to focus more on serious paintings for now. Since this painting is quite large, for me, at least, (16x20") I'll post the progress in stages.
