Swans and Cygnets - Not so recent work!

As I am so busy outside of work with house projects at the moment I thought it might be the time to show some work I did a long time ago. The above is a painting that is hanging in my house. I don't think I could part with this painting easily. It was one of my first attempts to create a really professional level painting. At that time, early 1990s I felt I was really starting to improve beyond the level I had been at previously. Now I realise how far there really is to go, and how far imagination and creativity can be stretched. Still, feel free to post comments about this work...I enjoy the feedback, good or bad.

Yes... How DO you know when you've reached "that" level?
I think we continually grow... albeit some a lot more slowly than others.
I saw your comment on Linda's blog so I dropped in to see your work... I'll be back ..I'm looking forward to seeing some of your recent work... I'll bet it's wonderful!

Thanks for your comment Marian, and welcome to the blog. Yes, I agree, we can never stop learning, that's part of the fun! The aim of the blog is to inspire and maybe help a little...in painting and just enjoying art. Jim

I just wanna say that yes we can't stop learning new things. What's more important is we must share what we learn and thank God for everything. Keep up the great work.
