Paintings in progress...

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.

Small things....

I bought these frames at a church rummage sale and decided to paint on small mixed media paintings on canvas paper.

daily painting

5x10 redo actually this didn't photograph that wekk
5x7 redo
In progress 5x10. Painting daily has really helped me develop my painting style. I am more confident and generally begin my paintings with a photo or an idea -perhaps colors or shapes then i let the painting evolve. At times i let the painting find itself -by that i mean i apply color until i find shapes and get ideas. Mainly i try to not be a slave to the painting, i worked far to long to let this pleasure become that - work that is.
