I think my painting has come a long way

I started painting this spring and am teaching myself. I started a blog where I post them with commentary. When I look at my earlier work (ha!), I'm almost embarrassed. I may even paint over those canvases. It's been a humbling experience. Here's a link to my blog. Comments, suggestions, tips are more than welcome. What do you guys think?

1. Wow

You must be a natural. Hard to believe itís only been months when it looks more like years. Your shadow work looks pretty advanced.

For a novice, your paintings as a whole are pleasing. Keep going...

3. I really enjoy your style.

I am also an artist, but I have not painted in years. Life somehow got in the way. You have inspired me! I really want to get out my palette, paints, and canvas and start painting.

I like your use of color, too. I am really glad that you are enjoying it. I always found it relaxing to get "lost" in the world of my creation on canvas.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us. You have truly inspired me!

5. Start painting again.

I'd love to see what you come up with. You're so right about getting "lost" in the work. I'll start painting early afternoon, and before I know it, it's dinner time!

4. My wife paints also,

she is the artistic half of us,while I played sports and dealt with my given talents. I watch her sit down and in 10 minutes do something amazing. I look at you paintings and have the same amazement, as my brain wont let the picture in my head, move to my hands. You are gifted!

6. A local gallery is going to sell my paintings!

And one of my paintings was accepted in a local art show. Wow! And I've only really been painting for about six months. I'm try humbled!
