Bizarro world

There is a time ,when you confuse gouache for acrylic and your dog sleeps in the closet because she is too old to find her bed, and that you continue to work on a painting that screams STOP that one must know that they have entered BIZARRO world. A dangerous but fascinating place where caution is thrown to the wind and you wander until you are quite frankly done.

*Warning,bizarro world is not for babies.

Purple Haze

Purples Haze and a wish for spring

Below is a beginning painting of Iris. The last painting I did of Iris the paint was way too thick using mainly diox. purple. Now I seem am using a combination of magenta and Windsor blue or pink opera and cobalt violet in different combos. and it seems to be more lush and transparent.

Waiting for the next snow storm in Michigan to begin this evening,not too bad only 2-6 ":)

Saturday afternoon

Color seems to be my main focus and lack of discipline causes me to do the line thingy.Oh well,life is short might as well paint as I wish,one never knows what one may discover.
