Points of interest

I have been working so hard lately i haven't been able to visit and comment on all of my blog friends posts.
I did manage to paint this pear painting. Actually the only thing that interests me about this painting are the stems. I have been thinking about trying a bit of collage or stamping or script. Something.... mainly i want something that is more interesting to me. Not sure what.
So happy it's the WEEKEND!

Colors of Peace

Sap green,perm. rose, yellow gamboge, scarlet lake, cobalt blue.
The colors that dreams are made of. I am trying my hardest to loosen up. Finding lines i need to keep or create ,while losing those that are not necessary. A challenge to be sure but there is nothing like being lost in a painting. Time stops,stress and troubles disappear. ahhh

Learning to paint and loving it!

The other weekend my husband and i visited Ann Arbor,which we often do. We love the atmosphere and the shops of this diverse University of Michigan town. Well, I bought two new sable WN brushes and let me tell you what a different experience painting has been. The brushes hold an incredible amount of water OR paint depending how you use them. So being playful and loving process more than anything i play and play. Seriously wonderful brushes.

Not a fence!

The other morning as i worked on "over working"this painting, my husband walked into my art space and asked,"what are your working on?" Then he looked at my painting and said ,"oh a fence???? " Then he proceeded to say looks a little muddy????? whaaaaa? I said well lets just call it abstract?

Seriously it's just a piece of paper. ugh. And it was a heck of a lot of fun to.... over do!
