I have been having a lot of fun turning some of my photographs into paintings. At the moment I prefer watercolor style effects, but I may try some oil painting in the future. It is an exercise in trying to envision what a scene would look like as a painting when I am out taking pictures. Some times they just jump out at me, and other times they take a while to develop. I plan on having several of these done as large prints on canvas. Instead of shopping around for art work to hang in my home, I get much more satisfaction in making my own.
