Picture taken at 5:58pm. I am feeling the strain of the days work, and have a few issues that I am having problems with. So there is more work to do, but it is time to take a break and enjoy a Birthday Dinner with my Wife Barbara. Be back soon.
This years Birthday Painting with this photo update from 3:40pm CT. I have used Vincent Van Gogh 1890 painting Wheatfields with Thunderclouds to make color decisions and to educate myself with much Vincent put into each of his canvases. The flow of the music is not done, but that will be work for later. Next up the applying of the words from Rod Stewart’s Forever Young.

Photo taken at 11:30am. In the style of Van Gogh I am applying horizontal steaks of paint using a palette knife. This painting is proceeding quite well, which I am somewhat surprised. Over the next hour I will be using the palette knife to fill-in the rest of the background with different shades of greens and blues, while always keeping on eye on the original Van Gogh work.
This image three 10:06 CT. I did not want to add an extra canvas but, there was no choice, and the extra 16×20 canvas connected easily.
Birthday Painting 8:19am CT. This is canvas is 2 feet by 6 feet. In the past few years, I have chosen a masterpiece painting for color. This year I have again Vincent Van Gogh. The painting is Wheatfields Under Thunderclouds that he painted in the last month of his life. Here is the link to better view this great work of art.
