Painted Fingers

I'm realizing something as I try painting more, paintings look a ton better in real life.

Taking a picture somehow kills the layers and makes it look a bit flat and dull. Or maybe I've just completely lost my mind and need to stay away from paint fumes.

Well here are the two that I painted this MLK weekend, one on paper and another on canvas. One started to look like crap when I started and the more and more I looked at it the more I liked it.

The other is still on my bad side, but maybe with time I'll come to like it more (no promises). Feel free to guess which is which.And painting on canvas is an interesting learning experience.

Winter scenes almost always are better than summery scenes.
