New paintings in the form of three abstract expressionist paintings were done yesterday on my back porch, on acrylic paper. I have plans to make one into bookmarks so that one will be in print only other than the bookmarks. The other two are for sale. As I was painting these, I had many thoughts … Continue reading Painting with thoughts..
I noticed there is this stigma I did not existed because I was wrapped up in my own world as an Artist. I get the strong impression most people think that they cannot be Art Collectors unless they are rich, or have a fancy home. None of that is true! Art is a courageous purchase, … Continue reading YOU Can Be An Art Collector!
This painting was inspired by a random photo I saw of an image frame next to a gradient image. I changed the colors and painted with oil pastels. As I was painting, it felt like a frequency like you see in music..waves that go up..and I can't stand straight lines, so when I came time … Continue reading Painting: Whitespace
I am learning once more that painting in general...every stroke matters. When I first started, I read Nancy Hillis blog. She said that for an exercise make six strokes on a piece of paper. She said nobody will do what you do, that alone makes it different. I reminded myself of that today when I … Continue reading Painting; Muse
I painted this on a weekend. The sun was shining bright, and I opened the windows in late fall, and listened to my Indie song folder and let go. I started in the middle painting orange, and moved across and down. I wanted an abundance of colors and a strong flow of positivity. I call … Continue reading Painting: Breath of Life

16x20 flat canvas, acrylic. Post Minimalism original painting My shot at Geometrics, turned into "messy" geometrics and I can not be more proud. I did this in mid 2019, and was so thrilled and learned a lot. I started off with sketch lines, I ended up leaving on the canvas, and then tried using other … Continue reading Painting: Blurring the Lines
I painted this summer of 2019. I had been listening to Susie Suh's song: Everywhere. The backdrop on the video, was a photo of a blurred bunch of trees. I could not mimic that because I don't do landscapes so it ended up being something else with movement, the yellow adds dimension and light, great … Continue reading Painting: Everywhere
16x20 flat canvas, acrylic, abstract drip and spray painting Painted a lot in the Spring of 2019, as Summer came close, I painted this one, wanting something bright, cheerful. I started off with green and yellow backdrop on either side, and then let colors come to mind and used a scraper to make interesting lines … Continue reading Painting: Ribbons
Speak is dramatic. I called it one of my extreme paintings. Done in Spring of 2019, it was more sharper and different. I let it sit for weeks, looked at it, then went back and added more to it. The many layers give the eyes something to do and look at, and it is loaded … Continue reading Painting: Speak
