No direction known

Soooo of course I couldn't wait. I thought about cropping but then I remembered my brand new oil pastels,a christmas present from my husband ,and I thought why not????? So I began to recklessy go forward, no direction known,except to get rid of the muddle on the left. A little pastel here a little watercolor pencil shavings there and well... it's been fun I think I will play with this painting a little more and try again.

Finding my way

I began this painting yesterday. I told myself that I would plan out this painting,none of this,oh let's try this color here that looks like a great color I think I'll try it. NO I planned my palette! No impulsive color crazed behavior. Things went well for a while so I decided to stop painting. When I returned to paint my mood had changed.Impulsive behaviors took over and well wrong wash here lost flower there.... ugh. Now I need to either quit or find a new direction. Possibly some magical under painting,cropping or scrubbing until a giant hole appears and the inevitable happens.

chandelier thing

First of what I hope will be many . I have this chandelier thing.

virtual sketch date Dec.

Well here it is. I am not a landscape painter, at least I haven't painted that many. The drippy painting at the top was my feeble attempt to loosen up my painting. I also added a bit of ink. I was a little frustrated at the lack of color and couldn't come up with an interesting pallete. Sort of zzzz paintings. Happy holidays to all.
