I am pleased to learn that my painting, Spring is Coming, is a finalist in the Raymar Competition:

Spring is Coming, oil, 18x24

I first painted this subject in watercolour and wanted to see what I could do with it in oil.  It has been
 through several stages. At first I had decided to leave out the hedge and fence which were in the original watercolour and just allow the road to lead the eye into the painting but after awhile I felt it really did
need the stronger foreground.  I also had much more red in the mud but toned it down feeling it was
 fighting with the reds in the focal area. Available at Gallery 8, Salt Spring Island
