Keeping it Simple


Keeping it simple in preparation for other larger more abstract paintings.  I took a 4" brush and did a series of trees like this.  The paper is maybe 9X12.  The 4" brush turned on its side is just a small brush and turned flat gives the big swoop of the evergreen limbs.  I do love my large brushes.

Enjoy your weekend

Still playing

I am still playing with color, texture on an archival board with paper and acrylic paint.

This time of the year can be so beautiful and I am affected so much by my environment.  When walking with a dear friend and looking at how blessed we are that we can freely do that I thought I should paint some trees.  They are so green.........................  What do you do with that?  I started adding bits of paper and layers of color, reflections.  Something to liven it up.  Yet when I look at it
in nature all that green seems to be OK.  There's a big question there, I think.  I like to liven it up and add some joyous color to it.

Enjoy your day!

Playing   Acrylic on 10X10 Archival Panel $100

The Art Fair is over, everything put back and tucked away and then what?  Open House in November and what to do in between.  Start playing again.  So here is the first of my "play".  It's really a play on composition and color.  I think I will do some more before I take out another of my big canvases.

I love making my trees the opposite color of what you expect.  Bright and cheery.  Uplifting.

Hope you are having a great Sunday.

Fall Colors

Fall Colors 40"X30" Oil on Canvas $1250
painted on gallery wrapped canvas painted on the sides so that no frame is necessary.

It's a little early but the air seems to say it is fall. The true colors are a little more vibrant.

Mixed 10X8 Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper $80
I was going to call this many hats.  I wear many hats with my art and I never know which one is going to show up.  Must have many personalities.  Oil is my favourite but too many things are happening today so I do bits here and there.
