Off The Dock

Off The Dock 5x7" 
  Sometimes these scenes almost crop themselves and between the overlapping shapes and colors I just can't help but start painting. The scene for the subject of this painting was in Friendship Maine.

Bulb

 

This sketch was an attempt at capturing that semi glowing color that lightbulbs seem to have in almost any lighting situation. Sometimes the color harmony within an object is like a perfect conversation.

Meringue

This painting was the result of relating colors and pushing temperature as far as possible.. I have a lot of fun when paintings like this one are being made. Let me know what you think.

Belted

Belted 8x10" 
This painting from a local Belted Galloway Cow farm was a fun attempt at balancing the warm and cool colors in an interesting ratio while also keeping the pattern of light and dark interesting. The cows will watch you paint and look directly at your work when you turn it around for them to see. yes I've done that a few times. :) 

Happy New Year everyone!! thank you for being part of my past year.

Wonderland

Wonderland 5x7"
The fun in this piece was attempting the stacking of all the planes of depth on the front right to the back left and then letting you wander in the middle to left foreground.. Not relying on just a circular composition and letting depth in is always a challenge. Sometimes you feel like you can control composition, sometimes..

Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time 5x7" 



The Warm grey green surrounded by blues and violets was just too much to resist. Had to be painted. This was an old home of mine.
