Almost Done

Painting #1 Untitled – imaginescape – 11 x 14 inches

The title of this post sounds dramatic but I am about done with the available space on my WordPress account. Do I open another account? Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

Painting #2 – Quiet Composure -imaginescape – 11 x 14 inches

I worked on the above painting over a matter of several weeks perhaps longer. I lost the foreground several times and I feel that the sky and background is the star. I am not only a fan of lumunism, I adore tonalism. I feel that perhaps this painting leans towards tonalism.

Painting #3 Within the Veil, Hebrews 6:19 – 11 x 14 inches

I worked a little more values in the background of this one.

Painting #4 Fire Skies 11 x 14 inches on cradled board

I painted this one within days of the Camp fire in Paradise.

Painting #5 Who Made Heaven and Earth – 12 x 14 inches

This is a mixed media of which I am slowly getting into to. I have to rework my studio layout in order to have everything ready.

Painting #6 Another View – 11 x 14 inches

This one is gouache over a watercolor underpainting. Though I did leave the sunlit background alone, in other words, just watercolor showing.

Painting #7 – Bullards – 11 x 14 inches

I am planning on mounting this onto a cradled board. My son-in-law has been making me some boards for mounting my watercolors onto. I find that certain paintings excell at being mounted and others are better off behind glass. It seems like it is an extension of the painting process. I really like the look of a mounted watercolor.

Painting #8 Abundance – 11 x 14 inches

Last but not least of the group. Another one from my imagination and I like what appeared. Sometimes abundance shows up in my studio! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend, carry on!

Painting Life

#1 Admission 11 x 14 inches – imaginescape

February is turning out to be a busy time of painting. The painting above was painted fairly quickly. I purchased a new color by Daniel Smith, Indian Red which is the best to strike and leave it alone. That’s alright with me because I like to get in and get out.

#2 Untitled 11 x 14 inches – Bullards Bar reservoir

Sometimes I work with a photo, this one is based on Bullards Bar reservoir where I hike and play.

#3 Untitled 11 x 14 inches – inspired by Lassen

This one was inspired by Lassen Volcanic Park, one of my favorite places to go to. I wanted to paint what mattered and forego needlt detail.

#4 Red – 11 x 14 inches – imaginescape

Yes, a little color right?! Yes! Don’t hold back I say!

#5 Gentleness – 11 x 14 inches – imaginescape

Less is more! No explanation needed.

#6 – Waiting for Truth – 11 x 14 inches – imaginescape

I enjoyed working with my imagination for this one. Are those trees, people? You decide.

#7 untitled – 11 x 14 inches

Last one of the group. Have a wonderful week, use some imagination!
