Decided to try my hand at doing some painting. This is my first one. I used some plastic sheet board so that I can clear coat it and hang it in the bonsai garden on the bamboo fence behind my bonsai trees. First time I have painted a picture, rather enjoyed it. I think I may continue with painting more as time permits.

Cool picture, Steve!
When are you going to start painting fish?

Very soon. Just have to finish collecting the rest of the needed supplies and then I plan to work on some landscape and fish ones.

Finished up the painting tonight that I started last week. This is only the 2nd canvas painting I have tried since picking up painting a few weeks ago so still trying to teach myself by learning something new from each one I work on.

Very good!  Hobby Lobby has tons of supplies plus books on painting.  Keep it going and post photos of your work.

I've been so busy filling custom rod orders for the past 2 months I finally just had to take a little mental health break after finishing a rod tonight. Spent a couple hours relaxing and doing a little painting. Plan to hang this one out in the backyard bonsai garden next to the one I did last year. I really enjoy spending time painting since taking it up last summer.
