Savannah...I

My challenge in the following 28 days will focus around Landscape or Cityscape.  This is an area where I haven't spent much time.  This is a tiny little thing....only 5"x7" on a canvas panel.  My husband and I spent many hours walking the streets of downtown Savannah last Spring and Summer photographing interesting buildings and townhouses.  I tried to keep this painting from becoming too ticky tacky and it was hard.  I think that I will become better acquainted with what to include and what to leave out in the future.  Tomorrow is another day and I am up for the challenge!
I recently bought several new books for Christmas and was given a beautiful book on Thomas Hart Benton. I saw a documentary on his life and work and have so much respect for him.  I will tell you a little bit about him and include photographs of some of my favorite paintings.

Thank you...very much, Diane...new ventures are always a little intimidating in the beginning. By the way, loved your candy paintings!

Linda I think the way you lost the house in the back is very effective. You held your center of interest. Nice job.
