24x30 inch liquid and open acrylic on wood panel in process, January 2013

It has been over a year since I posted but I was finally able to post on my blog after figuring out why Google kept sending me back to my email... figured it out ( with help) and am now back to posting.
It has been a busy year since my last post, several shows and lots of painting, drawing, printmaking and even some ceramics thrown in  at the end of the year.

new studio image

24x30 acyrlic and mixed media on wood panel, in process.
A bit of a new direction, I was uncomfortable with the figure in the back, but kept at it and changed it into a cat like being. Much happier with that decision... hoping to finish it up this weekend.

Flute player revisited

I originally finished this painting early last fall. I wasn't satisfied with it for several reasons, the flute player, background and central figure were all problematic in the original version. While gathering paintings for an upcoming show I decided to go back into this painting. I am so glad that I did, much happier with the result in this version.

Helpless to resist and couple with an egg, 2 acrylic paintings on wood panel in process

Helpless, 24x24 acrylic and mixed media on wood panel. Couple with egg, 24x30 acrylic on wood panel. Both of these paintings are still in process, I changed the animal in the egg couple painting yesterday and am not totally sure of it. Originally it looked more like a fox... don't know where it is heading.

drawings on blackboard painted panels,continued

I discovered yesterday that along with the derwent drawing pencils that I have been using, I can also use prismacolor sticks and pencils which I have been carting around since the late 70's and have not used much at all. I am glad I never got rid of them now. I figured I would never use them again, but was happily wrong. I like that I can get more color now and can lay in larger areas without using a pencil. I am really having fun with these. I think I will be able to work in a bit larger format also. I am enjoying the smallness for now.

untitled, baby striped sheets...liquid and open acrylic

I don't have a real title for this, I picked it up again recently. I started it about 2 years ago and then lost interest, I had several suggestions from my facebook page, but nothing has stuck for me. It needs a bit of work yet, but it is mostly finished.

never leave your luggage unattended

I needed a painting, or at least wanted to create a painting for an upcoming show at the parkersburg art center, so I searched around the studio and found an old painting that was just sitting around and I decided to work with that as the jumping off point. It was a total abstract piece and I began adding some figures. some of the shapes reminded me of luggage. Flight was the theme for the show. In this beginning part I have a flying figure behind the main figure's head which I removed today when I worked on the painting, I am really struggling with the face on the main figure , I will post later the changes I made today.

studio update, next sunday evening

I have been having a lot of fun with small 12x12 inch paintings this week. It is a great way to work quickly, and experiment with some different layering techniquesas well as color combinations.
Since I am getting ready to do several shows... I need to finish about 6 paintings that are in progress,but have gotten sidetracked with these little works.
All of the square images are from the last week. All are roughly 12x12, liquid acrylic and mixed media on wood. The longer piece is almost finished, I am still struggling with the cat.
