Little Storms

 This small painting is the result of a lot of mixed media work.  After doing an under paintings,  I  painted gesso over the paint, I pour drops of alcohol on the paint and also bits of rinse aid. I finished the painting by adjusting colors and value.

          Every so often I can't resist paintings flowers especially in the spring and summer. These were painted from the imagination, just remembering the motif flowers. The painting measures 30x30 and is done in acrylics with accents in pastels. The painting works well vertically also, but I tried it this way and liked it too. What do you think?

I remain in love with sea scapes. The colors of the ocean fascinate me and remind me of my former island home This work is framed and matted in a 30x30 frame. 

Spring Bouquet

It has been a while since I painted flowers and I decided it was time to do so. We have such beautiful flowers at this time of the year. This work is a mixed media effort .
