"Peony" and "Michael's Marble" paintings

I have been working on 3 paintings and have finished 2... the 3rd one will have to wait until we get back from the beach... AND I get moved into my AMAZING new studio!! (pictures soon) I have been watching the new studio be built right outside the window of my current studio.. and wouldn't you know it.. it will be done the day we leave for vacation!! But I will be back soon enough.. recharged and ready to move in!! In the meantime... I am posting these two paintings... I have been playing a bit with the mediums... and have found that I really like a heavier one with more stand oil.. I am painting just a bit more in layers and like that too.. but am struggling with how much brush stroke to leave... I still want a bit more I think.. it's all learning!!

"Michael's Marble" 40" x 50"

"Peony" 36" x 48"

I love both of these, especially the marble. I did a bunch of marbles once and had so much fun with the might have to get them out again.
