3″ x 3″ – POST #2

 

It’s weird what you end up painting when  you don’t really have direction. Your mind just jumps around between things you know, techniques you are familiar with, imagery that surrounds you and on occasion that brilliant moment of true creativity. The images below are examples of one or more of those ideas listed above. Fury critters wrapped in bold statements and color washes defined by a few hard lines.

The Orb – color washes pushed this image into a more defined image. Still abstract and loose the solidity of the orb brings a really nice contract to the background

Oh Look it’s a Squirrel – No one should ever be surprised when a fury critter makes it into my imagery. I wont lie that hook arm makes me mental but these are just small paintings that are meant for me and who ever stumbles upon them. So in that light I will embrace the hook arm and move on.

Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Thirty!

Nothing like a Squirrel praising the sky. Maybe this means spring is coming? Or maybe he is begging for winder to be over. Another arctic blast arrived last night and with it a few inches of snow. I think by diving into imagery of happy critters and sunny skies I am subconsciously trying to promote a healthier state of mind. Winter is becoming a drag… At least this guy exists though, even with the wiggliest fingers I have ever seen. Enjoy, see you next time!
