Abstract Seascape Painting, 8x16" Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting SOLD

We are happy to be back in Florida, and I wanted to mark the occassion with a new abstract.

SOLD
I really enjoyed creating this art.  Sometimes it is nice to just get in the zone, no particular plan, and let the subconscious take over.

I love playing with paint and these represent some of my favorite colors.  I didn't plan to do a seascape, but it feels like one, especially of the tropical waters in the Caribbean Islands.

The last few months have been hectic for me.  This is just what I needed to calm me down.

Have a great day and thanks for reading my blog.

Abstract Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Textured Art, SOLD

This small seascape is a study for a much larger piece.  The only question in my mind is "How large?"

SOLD
I am very happy with the understated color which makes the brighter hues really pop.  I am not sure if it would be call an abstract or impressionistic.......what do you think?

What I do know, I really enjoyed painting it and want to try it again and go BIG!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Small Abstract Painting, Fluid Art, Acrylic Pouring, Daily Painting,

I have been continuing to research and experiment with fluid art, and finally I feel I have made a little progress.

Purchase here
It is fascinating to see what appears as the paints and hues mingle, and frustrating because you can do the exact same technique twice and get two completely different results.

I was very happy with this one, that appears to be hundreds of little bubbles, but is actually hundreds of little cells.



I love how they look on household products!  These are from Kessinhouse.com.

Is this year flying by or what??

Sunset Paintings, Daily Painting, Small Oil Paintings

One of the recurring themes I find in my art, is sunsets.  Everybody loves sunsets....right?

I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring sunsets of all types.

Expressionist Abstract Seascape, Sunset Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Free Shipping in USA

For me, the best time to visit the beach is sunrise or sunset.  It is such a spiritual experience.

Purchase Here

In the morning, I am usually alone.  Just me, my camera, the birds, and possible a lone fisherman, trying his luck.

detail
At sunset, you may not be alone, but in a group of spectators, standing in awe, as the sun sinks into the sea.

Both experiences will enrich your day.

Daily Painting, Seascape Painting, Ocean Painting, Beach Painting, "Celebrating Blue" 16x20x1.5" Oil SOLD

I wanted to do a seascape, or actually a beach painting, somewhere between an abstract and impressionism.  If this looks a little familiar, it is because I posted the study for this work a month or two ago.



SOLD

I wanted to record just my memories and impressions of trips to the beach.  I painted with a knife and tried to work quickly.

I tried not to think too much about the colors I was using or where I was putting them, but tried to keep it really instinctive.





I wanted plenty of texture in this piece.



It was a fun exercise, although I wish I had done a larger piece.  Maybe someday I will.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.
