Two Hundred and Ninety One!

Let’s revert back to the tree like imagery once again…. Not a fan but I am trying to just go with the challenge and not edit what I post. Based partly on the view from my back window, which currently comprises of snow mounds 4 feet high and the tops of fences and shrubbery peaking out from behind it. I will say that I was able to integrate some thoughts which always feels good. I love journaling and this is a way for me to integrate that idea into my works. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred and Ninety!

It was nice to start this piece, because I grabbed a scrap piece of paper which happened to have a few marks already on it. It gave me a place to start that felt a bit different from the last few. I like that the piece moves across the paper and changes a bit along the way. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty-Nine!

Based originally around those tree’s I spoke of the other day, that was how this image started. That being said it quickly moved into a different direction using the star like shape on the right and some sort of bulb-like shape on the left. Since I haven’t been painting I’m finding color difficult which is why there is such a rainbow feeling. Hopefully I will get that under control soon. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty-Seven!

Well here we are, image one of the newer version of my challenge, 79 images in 55 days. I haven’t worked in so long that the imagery just felt so sparatic. I like the range of marks and the use of color. It is funny what initially starts a piece for me. For this one, it was inspired during my drive home. There was a row of trees on the side of the road. I loved the way the trunks shot straight up  into the air and then became entwined in a web of branches. I cannot really speak to the other elements they just started to develop.

Two Hundred Eighty-Six!

I never thought I would like the end image but here we are again and I love the image I was supposed to cut up.  In these last two images I seem to mindlessly move across the page and by the end it’s become a crazy collage of imagery and pattern. It’s exciting and rather stress free. I will say I had half painted the birds ages ago, but that’s why I thought it would be a scrap image. I hated the birds originally which was why I gave up and it just sat in my scraps pile for about 2 months. Anyway, enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty-Five!

Another night, another painting. This was never intended to be a completed image. I was trying to make something I could cut up for another piece but  as soon as I started working on this I started to really enjoy to format and image that was developing. Guess I’ll try again tonight for something I can destroy. Anyway, some of the elements in this image are items I am working on in a larger piece so it was really helpful to do this image prior to completing the other.

Hopefully this weekend will be productive. I will be back at my favorite seaside home and the forecast is predicting rainy cloudy weather which for those who do not know is my FAVORITE kind of weather. Probably should have moved to Ireland! Enjoy and see you next time!
