Biot Stairs - Day 19

8" x 10" Oil on Canvas Board
As most of you know I'm not a landscape painter!  I took a workshop from Dreama 
Tolle Perry this past summer hoping it would get me in a another zone so I can
paint landscape.  Well, I'm still not excited about landscape, but I am excited about
those little vignettes that we see on our daily walks.  While in the South of France a 
few years ago I took a zillion pictures of those wonderful little landscape "still lives" we
see everyday around us. This challenge was about stepping out of what is comfortable and into
another world of painting.......so my final challenge is too paint 11 days of those wonderful
little landscape still lives. It's all about practice!!!!!

Beautiful Mary! I can recognize that little Dreama touch in there and like the way you have incorporated those techniques and applied it into your style. I love the bright warm colors and composition of this piece.
