My last painting

I'm so glad that I don't do reproduction paintings anymore. I assured my teacher and started to use landscape photos of my own. Of course, it is much more joy to work from a photo that I took myself. Today, I finished this painting, I liked its outcome and wanted to share with you all. I enjoy to work oil paintings, my oil painting longing lasted now. I worked with acrylics for a long time, of course they never give same satisfaction of oils paints.
Here is my inspirational photo of a lovely village house at Austria that I took that photo during our recent trip.
My painting doesn't have any idea to be an impressionist or classic style!!!!!...I just wanted to paint as I wish:)) When I was working on this painting I visualized myself at those lovely Tirol mountains and valleys once again and I remembered an old favorite book "How green was my valley" by Richard Llewellyn, I think I was a sophomore when I've read that book. OMG, more the 35 years.... I must read it once again...
There are other so many photos that I would like to make their paintings as well. It is for sure that I'll have a painting collection of my trip photos near future... I always joke, my DD will be rich after me...you know, the value of the painters are realized after they die!!!! LOL!!!!
I would love to have your comments, criticisms.... Love to you all.....:))

I like the perspective of your photo and painting, gives interest to the composition.
"How Green Was My Valley" is also a favorite of mine and I reread it every 10 years or so. Beautifully written and makes me think about how life changed as we changed from a simple life to a more modern one. Some good, some not so good changes.

Thanks for your lovely comments...
It is so nice to hear another good reader about my favorite book "How green was my valley". Yes, too many things changed positevely for us from a simple life to a modern one but it is so obvious that we are more alone in todays hectic life and modern living conditions!

Rengin your painting is so lovely, I'm always very admirative in front of a paint work, unfortunately I'm not good at painting. Hugs Lorenza

Rengin you have done a great job with your painting. When I first scrolled down I thought it was a photo until I did read it and then saw the photo.

You are really good. My husband does watercolors and he enjoys that. He has never done oils. Maybe that is in the future.

Hugs
