I painted this from an idea I had for another painting which was to be an abstract…   I like dividing the space almost equally but  think in my abstract painting, I’ll use three different colors.  Not only different but not all from the same side  of the color wheel… I’ll try to have a greyed color from the opposite side,  maybe the piece will have a bit more of a resolution.

I wanted to paint something with a little bit of an asian feel today because I’ve been looking for plants to put around my pond. I picked out several Japanese maples, a blue spruce and a couple of other trees. I can’t remember their names right now but their evergreens and they are manicured like Bonsai.

Patience is a 11 by 14 watercolor on paper.. but its not for sale.. This is a painting of one of my labs, SAM. He didn’t actually pose for me I just used his image stored in my memory to come up with this piece. Also, I’ve carried around the memory of this door for such a long time. Now… I’ve put them together for some emotional impact. Dogs can tug at your heart strings can’t they?

I painted this in the deductive manner. That means: I painted it and before it dried I used a wet brush to pulled out the objects from the still damp paint. Then, I allowed it to dry and later filled in the objects with another light glaze of paint. In this case the lighter color of yellow green.
