Its been a long time! I am painting almost daily but i don't seem to access my laptop as often as i used to in order to post. I am taking a watercolor class in February so i have begun to practice again. I am always so frustrated at the lack of vibrancy in the colors and the need to add layers oh so carefully to not overwork and painting.
I have been painting all summer. Falling in and out of love with color and my paintings,surrounding myself with nests of art and books and of course walking my dogs. Enjoying the weather and good friends. Life is really as good as it gets.
I am participating in an art show this weekend and so i have been busy getting ready;adding finishing touches,sorting and pricing. My space is roughly the size of a door-so i arranged my paintings on the floor to see how the paintings will fit. I have additional small watercolors to hang or set on a shelf . This should be a fun weekend i am anxiously awaiting the show. Happy summer.
Happy weekend-i have been painting nearly everyday and enjoying it thoroughly.The top painting of the bull dog is a gift for a friend who just lost her beloved Lily. The second painting is a reworked painting that was posted in the previous post. The third painting is mixed media,very crude but the colors call me;not sure why? I am still working on the bottom painting. I found the dog painting rather enjoyable and i think i will be doing more-perhaps my two beasts:)
I am working on the two posted paintings. The top painting needs something-the colors are off but the composition,i feel, is good. So i am working on solving the problem. The best part of solving a problem is learning something new-such a pleasant path to be taking. The bottom painting need only a few changes and is less problematic to me.
