Arrange (2015)

A new piece that has a Kandinsky-like feel.  I love his muted colors and his lyrical designs.  This one just sort of came to life.

Watercolor sketches of Indiana Fall leaves. The leaves haven’t turned yet but will in just a few weeks. This is one thing I will miss once moved to Florida. You have really missed out on a gift from God if you’ve never walked through a woods with turning leaves, or even better yet walk into a woods and just sit on a stump and watch the beautiful dance of golden leaves falling. And even better yet, take your kids or grandchildren with you and sit quietly, and admire the beauty of the woods and the creatures that live there. It’s time we all slow down and be thankful for the beauty given to us, and not let it pass without notice.

Grid (2015)

Another “departure piece” for me.  I began this one by applying the paint from the tube onto the paper.  This is a dry sponge piece.  There are several layers of paint making up this piece added in a kind of random even sporadic way.  Thought there was a depth to this piece visually that created lots of interesting things to view.

Streak

27 Sep

  
I applied all the paint directly onto the surface of the paper & then streaked it around with a very mildly moistened sponge.  First layer was background color.  The central section of the piece is at least 3 layers and lots of additions to the top coat before feeling as though this painting was done.
