Soul searching...

Well, I have been doing a whole lot of soul searching for a few weeks and that is the reason for my lack of posting. I have actually been painting hours and hours each day in trying a new approach and I'm not quite ready to put my recent work out there. I think I have finally found a piece of myself in my new works that was missing before and I'll explain more later when I have a few of them  finished and feel ready to post. Daily painting in the small form has been so great for me in gaining skills and learning to work fast but I need time to experiment and try some new ideas. Check back in a week or so and see what I'm up to...

"My Jelly Runneth Over"

"My Jelly Runneth Over"
oil on board, 8x8"
$150 plus $10 shipping

Thought I'd paint some more PB and J's. I'm going to paint some very large but first I am in need of some big canvas... I'll be searching for those soon but in the meantime, I'll paint a few little ones.

oil on board, 11 x 14"
After what? you ask... exactly. After the last glass was gone, after the last notes echoed, after the last dance, use your imagination. In my world, it's after the ferry has made it's way across and he's put down his trumpets for the night. What is it in your world?

"Sacred Space"

"Sacred Space"
oil on board, 9 x 12"

Having a special place to calm my mind and think clearly has been a real blessing. This is my sacred space with it's heated floor and perimeter lighting. I tried to do it justice but I'm not sure I can...
