Was not going to post this one at all, had so much trouble with the windows......but what the heck maybe someone can tell me how to do windows:D:D:Ddone in oil and knife

I don't think you need to worry about a lack of perfection in the windows. To me this is a wonderful impressionistic painting. Look at the work of such beloved artists as Grandma Moses. My question is, did you enjoy the process of creating? I suspect you did. :)

beautiful color. I agree with Bobbi. in art the suggestion of windows is enough to satisfy the mind of the viewer. no one else would question the windows at all.

Fine job on this Pat..:)

Agreeing with others, in the context of this painting I'd leave those windows alone. The are a perfect compliment and integrate exactly right in this terrific little painting. :)

Pretty simple, dear Pat. Have a look here for Lilliput Lane images ...


They may be useful reference for paintings too I think (although I never used them to this purpose).
