Two More New Abstracts

Finished these two yesterday. The first on was a painting I did just to use up the paint I had squeezed out on my palette. The second was a start that was a demo for my Tuesday Class - I finished it at home and will discusses it with the class tomorrow.

New Abstract on Canvas

I am teaching an abstract class on Tuesdays - this is a painting I did for the class. It was already started but going no where. I ended up adding the large red shape in the center and that pulled the painting together. I really need to get working again as I am having an exhibit in April/May and I need a lot of paintings. I only want to show canvas in this show - nothing on paper.

Two New Abstracts for 2009

I finally had a chance to do some painting today and I decided to work on paper. These two are 30X22 inches - acrylic and mixed media on watercolor paper. I am pretty happy with both of these. My goal for this year is to work on my color and these two have nice, bright color - no mud for a change. These are my first paintings for 2009. I hope it will be a good year.
I talked to an art friend today and she mentioned enjoying the process - something to think about when painting - just go with the flow and enjoy it - don't worry about the finished painting, it will come.
