This little ACEO is 2.5 by 3.5 and is for sale for 10.00.
I painted this in the wet into wet style. First you wet the entire piece of paper with H20 and while damp you paint the background leaving room for the three yellow flowers. Then you pick up thick yellow paint and very little water and start to paint he petals of the flowers. As the blue starts to pull forward into the yellow,you pull it back out. You add the center color by charging the yellow with brown orange and a bit of red. The paper is starting to dry and so things are staying put a bit more and you go back over any areas you feel need more definition but remember you don’t want all hard edges so you pick and choose what to leave as is. Where the blue took over some of the yellow it will be green and that OK.

Try it you’ll enjoy the feel of the painting moving about on its own and watching th colors mingle.

This is the third time I have painted this piece. None of them are the same. I can’t tell you if its the last. I like it a lot, the colors, the tree and even the little cabin sitting in the back. all of it somehow speaks to me.

Lost my Marbles

I guess I feel like I’m in a bit of a rut so I painted some fun stuff, yesterday the Mouse and now the Marbles.
To tell the truth I haven’t been feeling well. You know how it is…I hate to go to the Dr. so I’ve been just ignoring it. Don’t you do that sometimes?

either it was really hot today or I think I had a fever. To make things even worse, I’m tired and really can’t seem to get any rest. I sleep all night and wake up tired. Of course your life doesn’t stop just so you can lay around… So I trudge thru my tasks… moaning and being a real baby…
I am tryng to get my brother packed and ready to go to Peru, thats tomoroow first thing and also I’m trying to find a new model for this weekends class. I guess I just need a break.

Never know…maybe tomorrow, I’ll wake up and be well again.
This painting is 14 by 9 inches and could be cropped to a square composition. I thought about putting a Jack in the upper left hand corner but decided to leave it as it is.

A Mouse in Da House

This is a small 3″ by 5″ painting and it is for sale for 10.00. I like mice and I know people hate them, but I think they are adorable, I guess I just like animals and small creatures … Its beautiful here in South Carolina, the weather is about 75- 80 F and the lake is beautiful with big white clouds floating by… It makes it difficult to be too serious.

I painted several paintings today, but since I was working on three I didn’t finish them all. I will post one tomorrow and hopefully finish the third for Tuesday.  The title was a suggestion, not my condition.
