This is another close up of the colors in the painting that I'm working on.  There are still more washes to add but I'm out of creative energy for now.  I guess that is why I'm blogging.

mixed media on wide edge canvas

This is 4"x8" canvas and is very textured.  So far I have only used 2 colors.  I painted layers of wash, over and over letting each layer dry before the next layer.  This is a work in progress since dry time is long and I like to think a lot about where I put the next wash and what color I should use or blend the colors to make a third color.  The bottom photo is a close up of an area of the painting.

   This is a huge, 4"x8" canvas which is also very textured.  It was inspired by the sun setting on the ocean.  I wanted the subtle feel of how the reflection fractures on the water and in the air through the molecules of moisture.

24"x36" acrylic on wide edge canvas.  I call this painting "outer space" which is really a bit lame because I'm sure I could have come up with a better name.

Mixed media on canvas.  This is a painting that I did for Lorene.  It is a very textured painting.   It isn't really representational of Edmonton, just my feel of it and how I remember it.
