October Break

Painting #1 “Pillar of Strength” -imaginescape

I will be taking a break from posting in October. I have a lot of outdoor work to do to get ready for fall and winter. I am looking forward to a break. For some reason I have been very picky with my painting lately. I will be painting but not as much as I normally do.

Painting #2 “It Isn’t As It Seems To Be” – abstract

I love returning to my intuitive abstracts, something that allows my spirit and creativity to soar.

Painting #3 “Mist on the Yuba”

Returning to reality work keeps me grounded and bored! I do like to fly with creativity and reality scenes does help me hone my skills.

Painting #4 “The Beginning” abstract

I originally titled this The End but someone thought that it looks like a womb, I think that it looks more like the title should be The Beginning. My sister gave me some of her art supplies and among them were water soluble oil pastels. They are so rich and creamy, of course I had to try them out on a watercolor painting. So here it the results.

Painting #5 untitled – remembered landscape

I just had to paint Bullards reservoir again.

Painting #6 “Everlasting Springs” – imaginescape

I turned over a failed painting and painted this one. I had some paint splotches which I don’t really mind. I used them to create several birds in the sky, not sure if it works but that’s alright!

Painting #7 “Reflections” – imaginescape

I hope that this coming month is productive and fun for all of you. October is my favorite month and I plan to enjoy it, until next time, cheers and God Bless! ❤️

October Around the Corner

Painting #1 “Amber Skies” – imaginescape – 11.5 x 15 inches

I have painted up a storm this month. In fact this week I painted 11 paintings in one day! Crazy!!

Painting #2 “Infinity” – remembered landscape – 10.5 x 15 inches

I love the softness of this one.

Painting #3 “Evening Sky at Bullards” – 10.5 x 15 inches

I always like to return to painting Bullards. I am fortunate that I live just a spit and holler from this beautiful area. I hike the trails 3-4 times a week, yes, I am spoiled.

Painting #4 “Mystic Woods” -semi-abstract – 11.5 x 15 inches

I enjoy exploring my imagination and always looking for what will show up next.

Painting #5 “Looking Forward” – imaginescape – 11.5 x 15 inches

I am so surprised that I can tap into my imagination, I used to think that I didn’t have one! I am continually being surprised.

Painting #6 “Another Day in Paradise” – imaginescape – 11 x 15 inches

I love the light in this one.

Painting #6 “Joy” – imaginescape – 11 x 15 inches

Sometimes I feel like I riding a wave of joy when I am able to paint scenes like this.

Painting #7 “Longing” 11.5 x 15 inches

My daughter wanted this one when she saw it. She said that it is “moody”, what a compliment!

Painting #8 “Abundance” – imaginescape – 11 x 15 inches

I bought a new Daniel Smith color, Green Apalite Geniune and it is a beautiful mixer. Well, that is enough for now. I have so many more to share, I will be doing another post in a few days. I am planning on taking a break from posting in October. I will continue to paint, though I will be working on some outdoor projects. Until then, enjoy your weekend!

Fall is Coming

Painting #1 “Guidance” 11.5 x 15 inches – abstract

I am a little resistant to the fact that fall is coming but at the same time I love fall. The colors, the change of lighting. The above painting was intuitively painted, starting with a bold yellow circle of paint. My favorite way of painting. I never draw or plan out a painting, I simply jump in and paint myself out, I guess I like to live on the edge.

Painting #2 “In My Dreams” 11.25 x 14.25 inches – imaginescape

I like to try out different color combinations, it helps me to keep things interesting.

Painting #3 “Faith Rising” 11.25 x 14.50 – imaginescape

I never know what I will get at the start of a painting, I am a person who normally likes to see where I am going but in painting, I like the unknown. Watercolor for me is an exciting partner.

Painting #4 “Living Waters” 11.25 x 14.50 – imaginescape

Followed by intuition to the last stroke.

Painting #5 “What Dreams Are Made Of” 11 x 15 inches – imaginescape

Oh yeah, this one was a thrill to paint.

Painting #6 “Blessings” 11.5 x 15 inches – imaginescape

Painting #7 “Light on the Horizon” 11 x 15 inches – imaginescape

One of those paintings that I derived from the joy of a different color combo.

I have so many more to share but I think that I will have to post more often to keep up with all of the paintings. I feel that I have hit an amazing level of breakthrough lately. I feel blessed. Have a wonderful rest of the week, keep painting or whatever you love to do in your life!
