Teresa and Trev, both your paintings are well done.  Difficult subject to paint but you have both captured the drama. :clap: :clap: :clap:

This is my first time trying to post so hopefully it works! This is a 5"x7" oil painting on canvas board, using only a small palette knife (no brushes!). This was also a fun "outside the comfort zone" personal challenge for me because I work mostly in very fine detail...
All the best!   Kathy

Thanks everyone! I was only successful yesterday at uploading two art pieces to my gallery. Mostly I was getting the error message so I will try again today. I am looking forward to exploring the site and learning a lot!
All the best!   Kathy

 :bigwelcome: Kathy , you will love it here.  Your submission is very well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

 Concerning the error, sometimes the file is too big.  I always have to reduce the size of my pictures before they can be uploaded to my gallery.   Hope this helps.
