May End

Painting #1 Diverging – semi-abstract – 11 x 14 inches

The completed painting from my last post. I am very pleased with the outcome, though I am unsure exactly what it is, I would like to hear what you all think. In some ways I think of the ocean. No matter, I enjoy art that keeps you guessing.

Painting #2 Wonder – imagined landscape – 11 x 14 inches

I am loving the new found confidence and vision that I have for my art. I look at a lot of art and have watched oodles of YouTube videos of people painting but have a distinct reluctance to copy or emulate other artists. I prefer to allow my own style and perspective to guide me.

Painting #3 Radiance – imagined landscape – 11 x 14 inches

I used an opaque white in this one. I am not a purist simply because I never know what a painting needs until it needs it, boy is that a tongue twister!

Painting #4 Untitled – abstracted landscape – 11 x 14 inches

Abstraction is near and dear to my heart. I have always been fascinated and drawn to abstract art. I am waiting on my paint and paper order to arrive next week and I am excited. I also have acquired quite a few canvases and once my acrylics arrive I will be delving into exploring acrylics and mixed media.

Photo of my favorite trail at Bullards Bar reservoir

The photo above is from my favorite trail that I hike at least three times a week. I haven’t been able to paint as much as I would like simply because my paint and paper supply was getting low. That is going to change by next week, yes! Until next time, stay healthy and happy!

  1. Good morning Margaret, Really stunning work and you are right to do your own thing. I think it’s vital….not to. be swayed by other’s work or thoughts.
    Always so good to receive new art materials….can’t wait too see what you do with your favourite trail.
    Your first image is dream like…otherworldly…and yes I could imagine the depth of oceans…
    Happy painting my friend. Janet :)X

    1. Thank you Janet for your comments. So funny how I pressured myself for a very long time that I need to be like other artists and if I was contrary to the “rules” I was doing it wrong. Silly me! Such freedom in giving that notion up. I keep promising to go look at what you have been up to…..well, geez I can’t be saying that forever! Thanks again!
