Here's one I'm working on. It's acrylics on stretched canvas and it's 16x20 inches. I am almost done with it. Season of Green.

We have been having so much fun in the abstract/contemporary forum in WetCanvas. A postcard trade project was started by Florence and lots of exciting trading and mailing are going on. I've recieved some beauties that I am going to buy some small inexpensive frames for to hang over my little desk where I paint. Here's one I did, a 4x4 acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper that is going in the mail to Ladywolf this Monday. It's titled "Standing Tall". There's something about winter trees that I am just attracted to and just have to paint them. Although I admit I like the weather in spring and fall better.

...and STICK A FORK IN IT, it's done, yeaaa! This took lots more work than I expected but I'm happy with the way it turned out. I'm varnishing it Monday evening and will bring to her on Wednesday. Hope she likes it! My mission was to paint the four seasons on this and having a river or stream running through the whole thing. It is 5 feet long and over 7 inches wide on the left and tapered down to 2 1/2 inches on the right. Tricky, tricky but I'm so glad it's finished and I'm happy with the way it looks. Now on to my next project which is paint something for my daughter to give her boyfriend on Valentine's Day. :)

This is fall...

Here's my project for my boss at work. Painting on a 5 foot long sawblade, I'm going to get it finished if I have to stay up all weekend to do it LOL! I have winter mostly done and most of spring and summer. Just have to do fall now.

Okay so I'm addicted to digital art, it's like painting with magic! I have a commission to paint a 5 ft. sawblade with acrylics which I'm going to work on tomorrow night. Hope I can work some magic with it too. :)

I took a digital photo of my acrylic painting on paper and manipulated it with software into a new work which is now a digital painting. I am thinking of making some prints of my digital works to sell. I've heard they look really good as prints. This one is titled "Shaman's Secret Forest"
