Fog on the Lake

I'm still strapped for time so I pulled out another painting that I did a while ago that I decided I didn't really like.  After I painted this, I did a 6" x 6" similar painting that I like better but as I am desperate to post a painting and haven't finished one this week, this suddenly looks much better to me.

I'm in the process of moving so with everything torn apart and separated between two places, it's been hard to focus enough to paint and also to find all of my supplies.  Maybe next week I'll be more creative.....

Chaotic Cosmos

Again, having little time to paint this week, I pulled out an unfinished painting and dabbled with it until I declared it finished.  This is done on paper that was coated with gesso and was also splattered with it during the painting process.  Throwing paint is always fun and such good therapy!  White acrylic was also added at the end to give some punch to what I wanted to be the focal point.  

I'm still hoping for more time to paint but it is also a good feeling to be getting these unfinished paintings done and off of my list of 'things to do' which seems to be getting longer and longer each day.

I finished another old painting this week.  I was hoping for some time to work on a new project but things have been pretty busy so I'm hopeful that next week will be better for art.

Abstract Canyon

Again this week I've finished an old project.  Originally, this was a very loose watercolor and I didn't like the colors I used.  I covered the paper with gesso and created a texture.  Some of the original color shows through but mostly, I used blues and rusts to finish this.  I think the texture in interesting and the colors are much more cohesive than they were originally.

I've never felt completely comfortable painting buildings but I'm pretty happy with how this has turn out.  I might play with it a little more but for now I'm going to live with it and decide what it needs.  I know I need to add some shading to the bunting but want to wait until this layer of paint dries.
