NEW ORIGINAL ABSTRACTED ART UNDERWAY




Hey my Friends,  FINALLY, I am taking time to paint.  I have started several new originals.  This piece on paper is a paint-over or a Do-Over.  I put Utrect gesso (the best kind) over an older piece that I finished up a month ago.....I did not like it once I saw it again.  So it can be a good thing to postpone showing something to the world.  It will happen again, I'm sure.  No Biggie.


I started 2 more with Prussian Blue, that's my color for Jan.  Can you see the little thumbnails up top?
It has been less stressful doing these mini-thumbnails first.  I get these from looking at older/other paintings and just putting down the dark areas.  You can do that with anything.  Magazines always have photos, so try that.

I have been taking/working hard with on line business classes. So that's why I haven't been posting or painting as much. 
I may never finish this class but I will not give up my painting.

Hope your winter has been tolerable so far.  It is snowing again here in SW Va.  And my lusting for a warmer clime will never go away.

CHICKENS BY THE SEA - NEW ORIGINAL PAINTING


Hey Friends,  A 9x12 on WC paper for your viewing today.  I start with a black & white thumbnail.


My favorite app for putting art on a wall just changed their backgrounds.  I'm really happy about that.
I was tired of looking at the same old walls.

NEWS FROM HOME - ORIGINAL ARTWORK


Hey Friends,  Finished this piece of 12 IN. SQ. WC Paper AGAIN!  In other words, I painted over the first round.  I like this much better.
I got a new tube of Prussian Blue.  Haven't had this color for a long time, so I have painted several using this color sorta like a blue print.
I will try to remember next time to take some before and after photos.

Hope your day is going fabulously.

PANTONES COLOR OF THE YEAR


Hey Friends,  Just got an email from Pantone and they have picked this color for 2019.
LIVING CORAL
One of my favorite colors.
It is a warm color and I normally like cooler colors but it reminds me so much of the tropics and flowers and grapefruit and peaches, Luv It.


I assume the various shades or tints above are acceptable as the color of the year.

So I believe I will get busy with some paintings with this color in 'em!!

Have a safe snowy weekend.

SOME ART SALES, MAYBE CHRISTMAS GIFTS


Hey Friends, I was going to show you 3 that have sold in last couple weeks but I can't find the other 2 on my computer.  I will not waste anymore time hunting.  Wish I could think of a better way to keep up with inventory.
The sweet Moma above and her Babe have found their forever home in Tenn.  Hope her new owners will send a photo of it hanging in their house.

Have a good week and enjoy the snow headed our way.

WHEN I GOT HOME = ORIGINAL EXPRESSIVE ABSTRACT ART


'WHEN I GOT HOME" refers to the mess a puppy can make when left unattended too long.  Imagine her in your studio, chewing up your favorite papers or brushes or maybe even a tube or two of paint.  Mardi Gras Pup


What do you think of the colors I used in this piece?

I have it shown in the two different directions, horizontal & vertical.
Which do you like the best?

This is available on my website HERE
Thanks for your suggestions

THE WINTER WINDS


Hey Friends,  I'm interrupting the stream of painting posts to show you what happened last night.
I had just gotten home from a PAR meeting, was changing clothes and I heard some BIG noises and glass breaking.  A couple more thuds and all was quiet.

We were very lucky, it could have been so much worse.
I'm standing in the window with the broken glass taking this photo.  Looks like a giant poplar and an Oak.  I assume all the rain we have had this year weakened the roots and then these stiff winds came thru last night.

You guys have a great day.
