January Madness

Painting #1 imaginescape

January was a fun filled painting vacation. I hope that the painting above is clear enough. I am finding that the camera on my phone changes my yellows into acidic yellows and wouldn’t work with this particular painting.

I truly loved not having to think about posting and I painted entirely for me without the idea of an invisible audience.

Painting #2 landscape (the blues are out of whack, more grayed)

I love letting out the imagination to play. I never know what will show up, I let it happen.

Painting #3 abstract

This one I thought was not going to work. I would work on it and then set it aside and over a matter of days I was thinking that I was going to have to scrap it. I then decided to use Prowhite to wash over it. I turned it around and there it was, my abstract!

Painting #4 landscape

This was so fun, I loved painting this one!

Painting #5 imaginescape

Dark and dreamy, looks like a castle in the far left at the horizon.

Painting #6 semi-abstract

Another fun painting, I allowed several days to gradually paint on this one. I wish that you can see it in person, the colors and granulation is more complex than this photo shows.

There you go, believe or not I painted 39 paintings and that doesn’t count the ones that I scraped! I am hoping to paint more slowly but when my creative juices get to flowing, going slow would be like holding back a dam break! So we’ll see.

    1. Thank you Charlie, that painting is one of my favorites and I was a little nervous at first because I hadn’t painted on a half sheet in a while. I think that it helped to focus on my initial ideas and allowed my creativity to push my feelings aside and all turned out great. I love it when that happens! 😉
