Fun Fishies

 OK, did the T P technique again using Alizarin Crimson and Prussian Blue .  took a couple of days to decide what to add to it.. Some 'artists' just put the background out there and call it an  abstract .. not me..  WE NEED SUBJECT MATTER...   i have painted these guys a couple of times but these turned out almost mystical.  i only used 3 pigments plus white..   WHAT FUN.....

Lady o the Lake #2

 What a fluke this is.  I was making greeting cards and my printer ran out of ink while printing the "Lady of the Lake" painting.  the result was so neat but not customer worthy, if you know what i mean...  ANYWAY, i thought about a theme we will be having at Gallery4 next year: Stripes. Wah Lah   this was born in watercolor.

Cold as a W. T.

 I "borrowed " this image from a watercolor painting i did over 40 years ago,  Love the buildings..  painted canvas cobalt blue first which really makes the snow look cold.  i fell in love with the grey sky so minimized the tree action. It is weird that i can so love a part of a painting.   now need a free frame.. ha

quarantine blues

Title says it all.  My kids gave me some new acrylics for my b'day.. had to give them a try. This painting evolved from the window outward and onward.  I used fewer colors, as usual, and it was fun.  Had to have a white frame..

more 6 x 6

Running out of subject matter.. looked thru old sketches that i have used for paintings (i am a sketchy  hoarder)..  these were really fun.. used minimum am't of colors..   cobalt, perm rose, sienna and white.  this photo is dull..    not sure if i should glaze them..  must ponder that.

6"x 6" Delights

   Enjoyed painting these gems. i painted the canvases solid colors first.  For the truck one, I sprayed the damp paint with H2O and then rolled toilet paper over..  i know, toilet paper is not an art supply item but it is in my studio.
    I usually don't "do" flowers but this was fun. I have a lot of photos i've taken over the years... lots of years, lots of photos....
