Day 14 Abstract

This is Day 14 .. and maybe finally I am settling in on something I am enjoying and that is appealing to me. The contrast of the colors is really interesting and I enjoy the interplay of competing contrast. I also love the circles especially the little white dots. The colors on my screen don't really seem to give it justice from what it looks like in person. This is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas size is 11 x 14. If you would like to know more about this painting please contact me at

Have a fabulous day!!!

Today is Day 13..

Today is day 13 and a bit after ..

I went and purchased paint today and found a place that has much to choose from and I came home and painted this painting. I really enjoyed this and the paint. I hope to do more and more. lol about 87 haha.


I have discovered that I love texture and contrasting colors.

And sleep .. haha

Goodnight!!  Thanks for stopping over..

Day 12

Today is not day 12 but this is the painting that was painted on day 12. I am one day behind because I have taken on more than I usually do.

This work is sewn paper's glued to a wood panel. It is about 12 x 16 in size. Some of the music paper that was used in this work can be seen. It looks better in person. I am enjoying the creation of texture. It's a challenge to make choices when they are so varied and limitless.

I had a good time at the demo last night. I realized that I LOVE to talk about my work. I think what is really nice is that I am getting close to doing something that I want to do which is teach. Several people have asked me to teach a class. This is very exciting.

In the mean time I am doing things these next few days that will make it challenging to do my daily painting. Hopefully I will find  way to catch up and keep going. I am excited about all that is happening right now. I am hopeful about the future.

If you would love to have this art .. please contact me at Have a fabulous evening!!! :)

Day 11 and a day late

This is day 11's painting and I finished it on day 11 but I am taking on too much. Yesterday I said yes to visiting with a friend and having a nice dinner and conversation and by the time I got home to take photos and post I was so tired I fell asleep and when I woke up it was well after midnight so I decided to give myself a break and post it today. The light sure is better during the day so this photo looks ten times better than it did last night. it is.. and yes I am planning to post again today so I'll have day 12 done shortly.

I am realizing yet again that I have to stop thinking and trying so hard. Sometimes I have found that when I want to create perfection I just try or want so hard that I over think what I need or want to paint. I get in my own way. I like this much better than all the other attempts I made with this panel of masonite. I have to say that I find posting these pieces less exciting because not everyone likes abstract. I haven't gotten the resounding support for these as I have the faces. So i'm less inclined to even share them on social media. But I'm going to keep pressing on and see where it goes. I am determined to keep going. I does and will influence other work. My sewing and stitching. Still mean to post some of those images too. Tonight I will be doing a demo at a local art group.. first time I've ever done that. I'm going to try not to over think it .. haha ..

If you would love to own this piece contact me at It's about 11 x 14 .. have a fabulous day. :) more posting later.
