April Gloaming

Painting #1 Vision of Hope – 11 x 14 inches

Oh my what an usually odd period of time that we live in. Thank goodness I live in the country and I am allowed access the local trails. The painting above is one of my favorites. A glimmer of hope and light.

Painting #2 Look to The West – 11 x 14 inches

This particular painting was quickly painted on an old paper that was given to me, Strathmore is the brand, not a favorite of mine but at least I can practice on staying loose.

Painting #3 Enrichment – 12 x 14 inches

This painting was one that had me guessing to the very end. I often have to push a painting to completion. It has been my experience that painting is often not a straight forward process. Since I paint blindly, it is even more pronounced and I have to actively push a painting. I am looking for more than merely depicting a subject. I am striving for more.

Painting #4 Crimson – 16 x 20 acrylic on canvas

A good example of my searching for more, the painting above was elusive and was in an ugly stage for weeks. I kept at it until I “saw” what I would call a Gloaming, a twilight or sliver of light.

Painting #5 Heavenly Focus

An essential part of my approach is to capture the essence of the scene rather than focusing on the subject alone.

Painting #6 Untitled

A fun colorful one, though I do need a title.

Painting #7 Essence – 12 x 14 inches

Last one of the group. Stay safe and positive, I know that this is asking a lot but I prefer staying on the side of positivity than not, more productive. Cheers!

  1. Thanks for the splashes of colour and positive thoughts! We snuck out of the city and onto the prairies today, a much needed brain break and mental health boost on back ways and ridge roads. Big blues skies and long, long views – phew!
    Take care.
