" Stroke of GENIUS "

This has been quite an adventure. I have enjoyed the discipline of painting more and smaller than usual. Most of my painting's are 24x36 or 30X40. To plan out each stroke and lay it down with out touching it to death ( very hard ) . I have met alot of people from all over the USA. That has made it worth it all. If you have a blog and want to cross promote with me just drop me a E- mail. This is a great way to help each other. Keep your paint brushes wet.

The heat in Texas has been on a record run. We are headed to break a record of most days in a row over 100. I wanted to paint the cool of the evening maybe the painting would make it feel better. This is a little different color scheme for me. Purple / yellow nice contrast. 
        So far I have really enjoyed this blog .

Kimah Harbor
I have never seen so many sail boats before in one spot. This
was a challenge I did this on a 8 X 10 Stretch canvas. It was
a fun captureing as many boats and still not paint each of them.
See if you can count all 1000 boats. :o)
