Ya'll seemed to like the last one so...

These are little study- pieces that I did about over a year ago, when I was starting to play with paints. I thought you might like them - I've posted them before but it was a long time ago. I still need to figure our perspective as I would like some depth. I know that smaller things are further away, and darker things are closer but it all still eludes me. Either way, I enjoy my little funny world and hope you do too!

I love the underground stuff...
And the flying stuff too...
the persective seems fine to my eye.

I have one of yours on hand right now in a sketchbook I am adding too and I must say these photos of your work are ever much as good as the one in person is. Great job all around.

These are wonderful. Very playful.
In oils when I want something to look futher back I glaze it so it doesnt look so bright & close. Maybe if you fade something you want to set back it will help.
Light cool colors resede, darker
warm colors come forward.

Oh, I love your little worlds. Your painting is so careful and yet your pages are so magical. They look like they belong in a wonderful children's book. These would make terrific storyboards for elementary schools. Keep doing this.

I love the underground scenes. What an imagination! And flying people - are they in a dream state or souls? Either way it reminds me of dreams that I have - I can fly in my dreams!
