I sure learned a valuable lesson tonight: CALIBRATE YOUR MONITOR regularly! I found this link http://pages.prodigy.net/ecmorris/tips/monitor.htm in one of the threads in WetCanvas and after adjusting to the proper settings realized that ALL of the images I've been posting lately are very yucky looking. Black on my monitor looks a kind of dingy dark gray to everyone else. eek! Here's the same photo of my painting after calibrating my monitor correctly (I hope). Can you see a difference? Which means I have to redo every singe photo of my works and repost them, arrgh!

LIFE IS A ROLLER COASTER Being inspired to try something new that I've been seeing some of the other artists doing, I decided to try painting a triptych (3 paintings) in different vibrant colors. These little paintings just flew by and I had a blast doing them. They are each 6 1/2 x 10 inches and painted in acrylics on unstretched Friedrich canvas pad canvas. I even used some glaze medium to glue some diamond dust glitter over the moon. (actually sparkly white tiny pieces of plastic from the craft store). I have got to try another in this same style, love the colors and how they turned out! I also have posted a close-up of the sparkly moon.

Molten Midnight Sun...Here it is finished and hanging on my wall. Didn't do much else to it except add a tree leaning in from the right. I put it in ABU to sell but I have a feeling I'll miss it a lot if I'm lucky enough to sell it. It's funny how attached to our paintings we can get. :)

Molten Midnight Sun
This is my newest painting and it's acrylics on stretched canvas, 11 x 14 inches. This is a work in progress as I did some more work on it after I took this photo and will post the finished one tomorrow. I painted one before with drops of light and really like this effect, I think I'll do more like this, maybe it could be my signature style or something. I titled this one "Molten Midnight Sun"
