36 x 24 inches, Oil on Canvas
The problem with not posting regularly is that one gets even more lazy! So I guess I'll be playing catch-up for a while. This drying right now. I'd started this painting a couple of years ago but handing really gotten the colors right but now that time has passed and looking at it with fresh eyes - the colors came to life...I title this unravel because the center motif looks like a knot that is unraveling and here lately my life felt unraveled...
But it's not all is good.
Happy painting!

8 x 8 inches, Oil on Raymar Board, Palette Knife Painting
I've taken quite a long hiatus. I just painted this painting on Friday while painting with my long time Art friend, Nancy Medina at her house. I think this painting seems appropriate to bring me out of my hiatus. I had moved for a short while to live in Northern Atlanta but I've decided to move back to the Dallas Fort Worth area. It's been a wonderful decision and so goo to be back among friends. I do have friends in GA and I've made some new friends but I've lived in TX for nearly a quarter of a century so it feels more like "home" to me.
O.K. now time to roll up my sleeves and get back to painting again!! Or rather, posting, as I have been painting but had let my blogs lag a little so I'll have to do some catching up.
