Tina's Haven, a work study in Oil

I arrived at my daughter's home the other day in late afternoon. The direction of the sunlight made her Japanese Maple glow at the very top, complimenting the roof and shutters of the home. I was so inspired by the contrast with the cool colors of the Hosta plants at the base of the house foundation. The steps leading from the driveway to the back porch are always inviting, as are the luscious grapes that grow on her vines in the backyard later in summer.

Covered Bridge - Original Oil Painting by Rebecca Jennings (Sunny)

A favorite country scene that brings memories of happier, peaceful times; when life seemed to move at a slower pace. Sometimes we need to just sit back and reminisce......

Older Painting - Re-visited , an Original by Rebecca Jennings

I was never quite happy with this painting. It never felt finished. I added some life to it with the boat and fishermen and took out the old bench that was so distracting. I also softened the hard line on the distant trees on the right and defined the birds a bit more. I am much happier with it now.
This one goes to my grand-daughter and family in New Jersey.
