I was thinking about this the other day, how so many people put anything 'other' or 'foreign' as somehow more beautiful, more interesting than where they live. I think of friends who mention how beautiful France is, for instance. ( And it is beautiful ) but then for those who have eyes to see, Oklahoma is amazingly beautiful. We may not have fields of red poppies but I would put up any Osage fall with the golden rod, the broom and the red sumac against any field of poppies. They are equally beautiful. Paint where you are and you will begin to open your eyes to the beauty that already exists for you. You don't need to travel more than a few steps or a few miles right outside your door to find it.
Here is a link to one more beautiful place in Oklahoma that is for sale on ebay Berry Picker

I thought it might be fun to visit the process that I go through on some of my figure paintings. The final painting is actually available for sale on ebay. The process photos are from a painting that has been sold. Feel free to visit my ebay gallery by clicking here.

This little painting was started in my class. They wanted a challenge and this was it! They found those pretty little flowers were not as easy to paint as they had hoped. I enjoyed the journey with them though.
