July Painting

Painting #1 – “Incomparable Faith” 10.5 x 14 inches

Lately I have been enjoying letting loose with painting from my imagination. I kept working on this one until it seemed to take off. Painting “blind” is teaching me how to trust the process.

Painting #2 – “Electric Dreams” 10.5 x 14.25

The idea for this painting started out with an image bursting on my thoughts upon waking, still dreaming. I love it when that happens, downright magical.

Painting #3 – “Dawns’ Early Light” 10.5 x 14 inches

Recurring shapes keep showing up in my painting, no idea what or why, that’s alright.

Painting #4 – “New Beginnings” – 14.5 x 19 inches

At first I was undecided if this one was finished. I think that as the title refers to, it works. It can be tricky knowing how far to take a painting. Amazing how one can get away with a minimalist approach. I am not a master of it though look up the paintings by Mark Rothko and you’ll see a master.

Painting #5 – “Grand View” 10 x 14 inches

Based on my memories of the reservoir I live by, Bullards Bar. I am a fan of Albert Bierstadt and the Hudson River School and this one makes me think of the style.

Painting #6 – “Finding My Way” 10.5 x 14 inches

I love the grays in this one. I am often carried away with bold color and I prefer grays and a “low simmer”.

Painting #7 – “The Light Within” – 10.5 x 14.5 inches

Oh I adore this one because I was able to paint the majority of it in one attempt. I came back to punch up the darks. I think the reason why I like to paint the majority at first whack is because I am in that immediate zone.

Painting #8 – “Early Morning Bright” 14.5 x 19.5 inches

I worked on this for a few days as it needed to be gradually built up.

Last but not least….

Painting #9 – “His Amazing Grace” – 10.5 x 14 inches

Sorry for the length of this post. I don’t post a whole lot and I had quite a few paintings that I wanted to share. The above painting took a while to show up. I paint on about 4 or more paintings at once and when I turned around to work more on it, I saw immediately how I should proceed.

I love watercolor because it is a medium that fits my serendipitous nature. Have a fantastic weekend folks! Thank you for your patience.

      1. I meant to say in my last comment. That quite a few years ago I visited the beautiful chapel in Huston Texas which was built by a rich patron to house several huge Rothko paintings. You walk into the chapel and sit on a stone bench in the middle where you are surrounded by the amazing vibrations that these paintings produce. It was one of those very special moments of awareness. Happy painting.
