Karen,Great subject matter, wonderful colors.

Sure, Karen, paint a backhoe, because you gave it such personality, it became just another friendly farm animal. The colors are fresh and clean!

Cape Elizabeth, not South Portland!!! (Unless you are going there, too!) Great places to paint here, can't wait to see what you choose! Let me know if you want help finding anyplace.

I love this. Your brushwork is crisp and your color is right on.
