two more springy paintings

Spring is on my mind. I eagerly await warmth and sunny days, and continually fantasize about tropical vacations on far off islands (this is driving Kai crazy because he's working on three gallery shows, and I keep distracting him with ideas of fun and leisure which will never least not for a while).

Above, Spring Dress and Navy & Yellow, both 5 x 7 inches, acrylic on watercolor paper.

and happy spring...even though it's cold here!

happy tuesday! and two new little paintings

Today was a good day. It has been cold and gloomy here, and everyone I've corresponded with on Etsy in other parts of the country says it is warm and summer like. California...what's wrong with you! But despite the gloom, today was a fun and productive work day. I contacted a photographer in Spain named Ines, whose photos I used a while back for painting reference, and we started chatting about life, and not getting enough exercise. Being able to connect with people around the world is amazing and very exciting...especially for me, since I have a hard time even leaving the house/studio unless I absolutely have to.

Check out Ines' beautiful and inspiring work here.
And the two paintings above are Calm and Swirl, both 6 x 8 inches, acrylic on watercolor paper.

two new paintings

I have been missing from this blog for a while now...because I have been super busy painting. While most of the paintings underway are commissions, I am slowly working on a series of my own, which I hope will eventually move in a new direction- depicting spaces and environments and focusing less on figures.  These two are Loose Threads, and Failed Seams, both 12 x 12 inches, acrylic on wood panel.
