The Evolution of The State of Liberty & The New York Skyline

I have been working on the Statue Of Liberty and this piece has gone through a few transformations.  I do like the new version of the Statue Of Liberty.  I have posted below the different transformations below, what do you think?  I am new to creating skylines.  I think the key is to not be afraid of changing the entire look if that is what the piece needs.

Spring Blossoms

Spring Blossoms gives me the feeling of a beautiful, breezy spring day with the smell of fresh flowers in the air.  It’s nice to allow your imagination to take you away to that peaceful, beautiful spot where everything is right in the world.

Spring Blossoms was created by first drawing the artwork then painting the hand drawn design with acrylic paint on paper.  This is the first painting I created by drawing the design first then painting it using acrylic paint,  I really like the effect.  I really love the soft colors and the flow of this piece.  I think this is the first of many pieces where I hand draw the image first then paint because I really like the effect and feel.  Visit my Society6 gallery for art prints and each print has various products including shower curtains, rugs, mugs, phone cases, pillows, cool tote bags……………..  http://society6.com/GlowingBird/prints
