Three Hundred and Sixty-Three!

This image looks as if Lady Boo Boo (my dog) did Shrooms. Just for all the animal lovers out there I did not give my dog drugs, I just painted her in a landscape that is somewhat hallucinogenic. I started this image a while ago and have been slowly developing it. It still feels unfinished but unfortunately for me I have a deadline and you do what you can. I can always rework it later. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Nine!

Now this is an image that has been slowly in progress for a while. I struggled towards the end and really feel that the upper left is incomplete but at this point I’m going to call it and if in the future I decide I want to tackle the image again I will. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Twenty One!

Inspired by the day, I started to write. I felt that the words were important to understanding where my mind is. Below is probably my first written entry granted it is accompanied by an image drawn in response, not my typical working method but today it felt right.

Head spinning, mind blurred I can’t seem to focus. Too many thoughts, too many faces, how did I end  up here? Simple procedures never followed always lead to problems. Suddenly they all erupt, One, Two, Three, BOOM. Creeping up the totem pole before you can even breathe, all I know is they’re mad. I’m sorry, not my intentions its just my job. Maybe a blind eye would have been smart, too late now. I hate conflict … what have I started. Maybe a cup of tea will soothe my mind….sip sip, enough.

Three Hundred and One!

Another New England Day has arrived and with it more snow. The Winter has officially come to that point where every time I see a snow flake I want to lay down where ever I am and throw a royal tantrum. I’m fully aware that I live in New England and that snow is a part of our winters here but for all of you who keep saying “you should be used to this by now” just know that I am on the verge of punching you in the face. The image below I believe came from my subconscious. Initially based off mound of good old White Powder the warming forces have now encompassed them and force them into a warming spring-like environment. I hope Spring pops out soon from behind whatever massive snow bank it is currently hiding behind. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Eighty-Four!

IMG_5561

 

The most recent addition to my hands collection. I really struggled with this image. I couldn’t seem to figure it out and each night I would photograph it and stare at it over the course of the day trying to see what needed to happen next. The original piece I created I ended up cutting up and layering into this piece. It’s obvious on the top section but the lower half of this image is entirely pasted onto the heavier stock. It was even interesting to see how the two different watercolor papers reacted to the paint absorption. Granted I forgot to make note of which papers I used… FAIL. I’ll pay more attention next time. I love how the fence like structure floats around the page. I think I really want to play with this cut paper idea for a bit maybe in the next piece. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Seventy-Seven!

series 365 - 277

 

 

This image is a bit busy, but it had to be done. It was one of those days when you see that an image could be quiet and calm but everything going on around you says you screams chaos. The image feels impulsive and incomplete but there are elements I love. As you travel through this piece you experience different moments and emotions. I encourage you to explore and please let me know thoughts. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Seventy-Six!

image

 

I was lucky enough to spend my weekend at my favorite seaside home, not mine but mi madres. There was loads of tea and yummy baked goods, nighttime fires and painting! The above image is a continuation of my other work. Still playing with shadow and a sense of being overwhelmed. This piece was a bit less emotionally chaotic since I was in a rather calm place when painting. Oddly enough I think the anxiety I was experiencing during the other painting made it a stronger piece. Either way the piece taught me more and I consider it complete. There is something I completely love about the greenery in the bottom left corner…. Enjoy and see you next time!
