2 gum trees and a lonely cow

I couldn't wait to post.. This painting has been going on for weeks and each week a little is added to it. It will have more cows, some pebbles in the sand, some grass fixing.
.
I don't know if I was passionately motivated to finish it like my other paintings in one sitting but there was a lot of patience, silence and a curious persistence to carry on.
.
My dad has requested an autumn landscape but the idea of painting red and yellow trees make me cringe because of the difficulties in it. I'm not sure I would understand how to balance bright colours. If that fails, he is getting this gum tree painting.
.
Apart from this painting, nothing much else is going on in my neck of the woods. Anyway, here is the painting.. You can see a larger version of it here (Flickr album)

Sulea, I stumbled upon you today. Your works are SO thought provoking! The cow painting is timely, cuz my dad wants me to paint a cow painting for him.I'm scared to do that- if he doesn't like it, then he thinks he has to hang it! But, I should be thinking whatever I do he will like because it will be made with love for him!. I didn't see an email for you, but I would really like to talk about exchanging links. I am also a self taught artist at www.sacredartimages.com and a blog on www.sacredartimages.blogspot.com Let me know what you think. Janie
