Imaginative Painting

Painting #1 imaginescape – 10.25 x 14.25 inches

“All My Springs of Joy are in You” Psalm 87:7

What joy it is to paint from my imagination.

Painting #2 – semi-abstract – 10.5 x 14 inches


I had a full day of allowing this scene to play out fully on paper. I remember not too long ago when I was afraid of letting go and now it is very comfortable to paint this way.

Painting #3 – remembered landscape – 10.25 x 14 inches

“New Perspectives”

Painting #4 – remembered landscape – 10.25 x 14 inches


There is something about trying to capture an ethereal look that I strive for. It has been a struggle at times but I feel that it is worth it. I have been tough on myself but it was the catalyst that keeps me pushing for what I want to achieve.

Painting #5 – imaginescape – 10.25 x 14.5 inches

“Enduring Waters”

This one really surprised me. My method generally is totally open, no planning or drawing. I know that sounds naive, perhaps it is but it works for me. I go entirely by intuition. With most of my paintings I feel as though I am personally in the scene, it certainly helps!

“A New Day”

Oh my, this was so fun to paint, I knew exactly what to do.

Painting #7 – imaginescape – 10.5 x 14 inches

“Once Upon a Time’

Last one for now. I have been really enjoying my new found confidence and in general good attitude about my art. Not too long ago I had such a struggle at times and I feel that it was because I was trying to find my way, my approach. Well worth the struggle and time spent.

Thank you for coming by to take a look. Cheers!

  1. I really love the first image….they are all superb but that once catches my imagination. You prove the point that by working persistently and consistently results are achieved. Thank you so much Margaret. Happy Painting. Janet 🙂

  2. It’s fun seeing a suite of them here. The last one is my personal favorite but they are all lovely each in different ways. So glad that you’ve found the way of doing art that’s right for you. The confidence is leading you in a wonderful direction.

    Some of the ones above remind me a bit of William Blake’s watercolors — especially #5.
