Painting #1 “Whisper” – imaginescape – 11 x 14 inches

Today is our Anniversary, we have been married for 33 years! Can you imagine? The years literally flew by. I was tempted to paint today but it will have to wait. This particular one was painted yesterday and very quickly. In fact I suppose you can call it an alla prima painting.

Painting #2 untitled 11 x 14 inches

I was going to write about my upcoming painting that I will be doing for my brother but at the moment I cannot find it. Looks like I need to have my niece resend it to me.

The above painting was painted furious and boldly. I like to paint fast though I have been trying to train myself to slow down.

Painting #3 untitled 11 x 14 inches

Seems like I have been drawing a blank on titles for these paintings. Another fun one. It is moody and dark but my photo doesn’t show the glow that is quite apparent in the painting.

Painting #4 “Vision” 11 x 14 inches

I wanted to hold back on the details and let the lighting be the focus. I truly love minimalism.

Painting #5 “Sparkle of Joy” 11 x 14 inches

One of those paintings that burst on the paper.

Painting #6 “Awareness” – remembered landscape – 11 x 14 inches

After I painted this I realized that it reminded me of an area where I used to cross country ski. It is located up near the hard rock gold mine where my husband worked as a trammer. I would drop my daughters off at school and then drive on up and spend at least 4 glorious (and lonely) hours. I didn’t really think what would happen if I got injured. Ah the days of youth! This area was of course ungroomed, I never saw a soul out there.

Painting #7 “Life in the Shadows” – imaginescape – 11 x 14 inches

Last one for this post. I painted four paintings yesterday and will need to work a bit more on them before calling them finished. I have been trying to get myself to slow down and be more methodical rather than paint in a furious, devil may care approach. Cheers!

  1. Belated Happy Anniversary, dear Margaret! 33 years? Wonderful! Unfortunately I never made it so long or my partners could not stand me that long. So I don´t know too much how it is to know somebody so well.
    Your paintings are wonderful and again they give me the feeling that you are completely one with nature.
