New Abstract on Canvas

This is a canvas I just finished and this photo does not do it justice - it is too warm or something is just off. It is raining and I can't go out and take a good photo and I am eager to blog about this one. I like it a lot it is 30X30 on canvas and I painted it in about 2 hours - one shot and it was finished. I wish they were all this easy.

I need to start deciding what painting is going where. I also need to decide on naming vs no name. I am thinking a series name followed by numbers for this year. The series name I am thinking of is Literati followed by the year and number - I have always named my paintings but after talking to a number of artist friends I am leaning towards untitled - at least for now.

Latest Abstract

Another one for my upcoming show - this one is 30X30 acrylic on canvas. Interesting coloring but I like it. I just bought a tube of that lime green color and I thought I would give it a try.

New Abstract on Canvas

New painting ans not so good photo - this one is 36X24 on canvas. This is a new shape for me - not sure if I like it or not - kind of narrow.

Abstract on Canvas

New painting for my upcoming show in April. This one is 36X36 and is darker in the photo than it really is. I had time to paint yesterday and finished this one and started and finished a 36X24 inch canvas that I will post tomorrow. I hope I am out of my painting slump because I need to produce for this upcoming exhibit and a few other shows. One thing is I am having fun painting again so that is a plus.

New Abstract on Canvas

New abstract - finished yesterday. I had started this painting at home last Sunday - it had some nice things going on but for me it was unresolved. I brought it in to discuss with my class and then made a few changes to it - which in turned caused me to make more changes. I do like the result and now consider it finished. It is 30X30 on canvas.

My class is over - and it was really fun I had a blast teaching and maybe they will ask me back to do another class.
