New-ish Art

I’ve finally updated my gallery page with the 3 paintings I finished for the art show last month, and I put two of them up on my Fine Art America page too.

This abstract is entitled Breaking Through, and I painted it with the thought of people finally breaking free of their programming.

The last two are watercolors that started out as experiments with my son from about a year ago, using salt crystals on the page to create interesting texture. After letting the textured pages sit for a long time, I built on top of them in ways that seemed interesting to me, without any set plan in mind. The first was more successful than the second and may have become a personal favorite. I titled it Outer Space 1 because I assume I’ll be painting more on the theme at a later date. I loved playing with my new set of metallic watercolors that I got over the holidays on this one.

The second is a generic landscape that seems a little garish to me, but it is an interesting effort so I am sharing it. Because I wasn’t as satisfied with this one, it is not getting a name nor did I upload it for merchandising purposes, but I do have the original available if anybody is interested.

I have been meaning to share these for over a month now, but work and life has been insane. Still working on coming up with some solutions to give me more time to create, but I am taking things as they come. It felt so good to work on these.
