The Bed

12" x 12" oil on masonite... this one painted itself; it just flowed. And it's the first time for a painting using cold wax and galkyd and I loved the texture.

Berrys Chapel Road

Went to get art supplies on Saturday and had the camera. On the way, there was the perfect hill and valley and shadows.

I like the foreground, especially.

16 x 20 in oil.

The Coming Storm

Small 5 x 7 inch oil on canvas. We live in a beautiful area with lots of farm fields and this one is not too far from home. As in go to the end of the street, turn right, turn left. One of those great moments when I was shooting the photo and things got dark fast and the clouds opened up.

After Dinner and too tired to paint

The after dinner remnants... left me too tired to paint.

Have you ever been just popping with ideas and the desire to paint and real-life demands just get in the way? I am going through a period of frustrations with ideas coming like crazy and no time!

I DO NOT sketch well but at least it was a moment of creativity.

Second problem - having time to go paint and getting caught up in an exquisite trail of links to some great art blog. Slobber on the keyboard. Haven't decided if it's inspiring or discouraging!

Off to do some painting. Ciao.

Lighter and Brighter

Decided to go from black to white on this blog. Black was great for the images but it's harder to talk and hear in the dark. And I decided it might be good to post a little more about the process and the trials.

Had my hair done yesterday, so took the sketchbook.

Sound Barrier

Another mixed media painting: 10" x 20"
This also uses fabric pieces. Using fabric really is providing some interesting directions to explore. As a quasi-fabric artist at one time, I just keep digging into those scrap piles.

Note: I NEVER throw anything away. It has its pros and cons, no?
