November coming

Painting #1 “Free to Dream” – remembered landscape – 11 x 15 inches

The above painting turned out to be more abstracted than I intended and I like it! I will be working exclusively on my portrait commission in November. I was able to flip some failed paintings over and paint some new paintings. I know, I know I need to buckle down and get serious. I will be now focusing on the task at hand.

Painting #2 “The Light” – imaginescape – 11 x 14 inches

Painting #3 Solitude Dreaming – imaginescape – 11 x 15 inches

I almost gave up on this one (typical for me) but kept at it until I felt better about it. I was surprised by how many people on Instagram really like it.

Painting #4 untitled – imaginescape – 9.5 x 14 inches

Painting#5 untitled – imaginescape – 15 x 20 inches

Painting #6 untitled – semiabstract – 15 x 20 inches

I loved painting this one. I naturally paint intutively and when it comes together so easily, it is pure joy and magical.

Painting #7 untitled – imaginescape – 11 x 14 inches

I have discovered that I prefer #140 over 300# paper. The above paper is 300# and it soaks up paint so much more which then turns insipid (to me). I use a lot of thick paint and yet I still have to go back in with even thicker paint.

Painting #8 “Peace” abstract – 11 x 14 inches

Last one for now. This was originally painted months ago and I decided to rework it, I am glad that I did.

Have a wonderful week!

A Break from the Break!

“Out of the Mist” – imaginescape 11 x 15 inches

I am taking a moment to post a couple of recent paintings. I have been enjoying my break from posting and having a blast painting. Unfortunately I have ran out of my watercolor paper. I am suppose to be working on a pastel portrait commission for Christmas. I decided not to purchase any more paper it paint until I finish the commission. Good luck me!

“Interlude” – abstracted imaginescape – 11 x 15 inches

I have been working on focusing on painting without an audience. I have noticed that I fall into that trap especially on Instagram. I truly don’t like that tendency of mine. Part of why I have taken a break was to pull away from that imagined audience. It has done wonders in that aspect.

I am unsure if I will be posting again in October, we’ll see. As I mentioned I will be busy with a commission. My daughters’ mother-in-law wanted a portrait of her and her husband. I am enjoying it so far. They are originally from Mexico and I have been listening to music from their country of origin to set the mood. Very enjoyable to say the least. Until then, enjoy the fall weather!
