July was a busy month for commissions with a really diverse lot of subjects. This is my classroom where I get set new challenges and learn a heap whilst making someone’s vision of a painting come to life.
This one is of a famous hiking trail in Japan. I loved the challenge of getting the mist to look look mist.
Here I got to grow a garden in a couple of days!
And how could I resist this cuddly twosome!
…and a chance to try out some of those quintessential American red barns in a lovely panorama format.
and lastly, a tugboat going about its work. Lots of detail here but that was offset by the loose sky and reflections.
Hope your month has been as varied and interesting!

Wow!! Extremely diverse, they are all beautiful! The complexity of the tugboat, whew. Absolutely adore the gardens, I thought it a photo first. That panoramic must have been tough! They are All really exceptional, you have been very busy!
Thanks so much for your kind words Crystal. The tugboat was a bit tricky and the gardens very relaxing. I enjoy the challenge of different subjects I wouldn’t normally choose myself. Having a little me painting time now.
Wow, they are really diverse subjects, and you have done a wonderful job with them Lindy. Pick for me is Japanese walking trail – that view and mist is super. Oddly enough I really like the tug boat too, and you know I’m not a boat person.
That tug boat was a killer with all that detail – but very satisfying to know I could do it! I enjoyed the mist and was really happy with how it turned out.

You are so talented!
Thank you ! Sorry I took so long to say that but I got busy and forgot to check. I’m heading over to check out your site now. 🙂
What a wonderful array of your fine works of art. You captured the mist and what a difficult thing to do. I was wondering what mediums you used as each looks different from the other.
Yes- they all do look different but they’re all done with acrylic paint on canvas except for the 2 dogs which were done on paper.
I do have a personal style but it does sometimes change for commissions depending on the subject. I did use the palette knife a bit for the vegetation in the Japanese Mist one.
Glad you enjoyed them!
Nice paintings, you’ve been really busy. I really like your garden and tugboats. I really like how you dabbled the branches in the garden painting.
Thank you Shawn- It was really busy so I’ve been neglecting my blog. Tonight I will post!
