Springing Forward
5" x 5"
Oil and Cold Wax on Paper


We are having a bit of a cold spell, but nothing to complain about when I look at weather in other places. So, why does this painting seem like spring? I am not sure, but I will go with it. The colors just seemed fun today. Maybe it has to do with spending the day with three of my favorite little people, my grandchildren! It's hard not to laugh and feel lighthearted when you hear their little conversations, such as wanting a guinea pig that talks for Christmas next year. If anyone knows how I can make that happen, let me know!

This is another "possible". A study that may grow or be a springboard for parts of it to become another painting. In the last few days, I have been putting photos of my work into Photoshop and cropping sections of them to use as a guideline for new work. These will most likely be done in acrylic since the oil and wax method is so unpredictable. Little bits of color seem to appear unexpectedly and as the painting sits, some of those will even change more as layers dry. Often little surprises seep though layers of paint. Two methods of working, one for my right brain, and one for my left! Thank you for stopping by!
