Every April, the fields are full of clovers. We love to take a walk down the dirt road and take in the beautiful view. One of my favorite times of the year.
I wanted to use the loaded knife tonight. I hope you enjoy, thanks for looking.

Suha, I think not! You are a wonderful artist!:eek:
The loaded knife is a blast. Find a photograph, and draw it, or draw something that comes to mind. Use the loaded knife and when you have the colors you can blend with the knife with no oil loaded. I really like to use the tube and the loaded knife. Thank you for your kind comment, I appreciate that!

Thanks Gary, so happy you liked it!

Thanks Katie, so very much dear friend!

Dear Pat, it is so special really. The fields just down from our house are full of these beautiful red clovers. It reminds me of the wizard of oz. I love the spring and the fall here most of all. Georgia winters and summers are pretty rough. Thanks!

Flipping Brilliant!

I agree with Ms Coops. You have a gift. This really shows us a kind of painting I don't think I've seen before from you. And it looks great and I could see you, if you decide to go this route, doing some remarkable work. You've grown so much in different directions it's amazing.

Thank you dear D Akey. I appreciate your kind encouragement!
Oils are so difficult for me, and I cannot help but appreciate the wonderful artists here that use them. Again, thanks!

It does Amanda. I don't know if the farmers have to cultivate this, or what nutritional value it has to the soil, but it is incredible. I want to jump in and eat a bite like the rabbits.:p:)
