Here is the second of the two paintings I delivered to Lifestyles yesterday. I worked from the same photo reference I used for Mi Amor, but did not really remember how I painted it. Turns out Heartland is quite similar. I love it so much I may have to try it on a grand scale! However, I do believe it is time to go on a photo-shoot to get some new inspiration.
