Acrylic Paintings

Finally, a New Painting!

It seems that there will just be times when life gets in the way of creativity.  🙁

My past two months have been full of all kinds of activity — too little of which…

Love This One!

Aren't those colors just yummy? I'd like to see what would happen if I tried to paint something like this very large.

New Painting: “Composition #6, 2013”

I’m finally posting this small one in my latest series. I’ve thought it was done several times before, and then decided to change something else. I’m posting it here now as possibly done, though I may still decide to change something else.

Finished This One Sunday

Well, it is essentially the same as when I first painted it, maybe a month ago, but I repainted the whole thing on Sunday, and made a few changes.

The colors on my monitor are not exact: the dark blues are purpler in person, and the fushias are redder and…

It’s Good to be Back in My Right Brain

Too much left brain lately, and I think I’ve done my last new website project for anyone else (pretty please, let it be so!).

My neighborhood website project is mostly done (well, are they ever really done?), so finally I can get back in the studio, finish #’s 1, 4,…

One of My Favorites in the New Series

…so far. Oh, wait, they’re all my favorites. 😉

But I do really like this one quite a bit. It started out horizontal with lots of red and blue and purple, but then I kept painting out what I’d painted in.

Learning to work with acrylic — what a medium!…

More Recent Work

Yikes! The intense focus on building a website for the neighborhood these past 3 weeks has totally interrupted my painting process, and even my posting process! I can’t seem to work in both sides of my brain too much on the same day. So web work negates painting. Must stop…

Change in Direction

Some of you may remember that about a month ago, I mentioned I was starting a new series that represents a slight (or maybe not so slight) change in direction.

I had found with the work I was trying to do that I was attempting to make new strides in…

Another Older Abstract: “Soaring”

This one is from 2009, when I decided to try acrylics again!  I did about ten 36″x36″ acrylic paintings in a couple of weeks, working furiously (which you have to do if you’re using acrylic, right?).  I was even using interactive paints, which can have the…

File This Under “You Gotta Try Stuff” — A Loose Study

Continuing my experiments with imagery: from earlier this year, this is a loose study in acrylic on paper for what may become a larger oil painting.  No real title, so far.  I like it.  🙂

…go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.
