This is my April painting chalange. It is true that I finished in March! It was posted on my file a while ago, but I did not like the picture. I took another picture, and here it is. This is done before I started taking classes here at PB.  I love mountains! Doina

Thank you, I am new and I did not go to the first page. Thanks for telling. Hopefully I'll be able to do the painting by the end of April, Doina

Hey!  Nice paintings showing up here!   O0   I just know voting will be as difficult as ever in the end.
Dorothy, I'm really impressed with your evergreens, so well done!   :congrats:

pfew, you're so quick!
Nice entries again.  :clap:

Last time I saw a real mountain must be 35 years ago, it feels a bit odd painting them.  :confused:
But when the portraits give me some space I'll surely try!!!
