Swan in Reeds - Finished Oil Painting

This is the seventh painting I have completed to date this year. I have three more paintings on the go at the moment. I am tidying up and finishing paintings which have been started a long time ago and that have been hanging around the studio for a while. In that regard, I feel good that I don't have as many half-finished paintings as before. I have got more disciplined about finishing what I start... So far this year I have sold three of the seven paintings I completed and these were all landscapes. As can be seen, I have diversified from landscapes a little in subject matter, as I think it important to pursue my own ideas. The above is the last of three square canvases I bought a long time ago. The other two are "Symphony of Silence" and "The Dream by the River" which I will try to add to the gallery section. Last I looked they were not there. So all in all, I am gaining some recognition on a wider scale, slowly but surely. As I have written before, my main priority is to improve and continue to ensure each new painting is done to the best of my ability at the time. I hope that the above painting has succeeded in that regard too. Let me know what you, the readers think, as always I value feedback to see what people like and don't like about my work. That's it for now, Jim
