New piece for Hope series

1 comment:

Again, I took a horrible picture of one of my new paintings, but I think you can get the general feel for the piece. The lower left hand corner is not darker than the rest of the piece--that is just my shadow from taking a picture with my iphone. Any way, let me know what you think.

Work-in-progress; background for Hope series


Kelly, I finished (?) the background for one of my "Hope" paintings. This is the large panel piece (58.5" x 47"). The picture is not great, but just let me know your thoughts.

This is number 365 in my daily visual journal! This has been a great experience for me, sometimes fun and sometimes very difficult to complete, but I stuck with it and finished the whole year. I'm excited to be done and already plan to do this again - this time with writing
involved. I will post nicer pictures of the entire set soon.

Good News!

New Hope


Bad photo of a work-in-progress -- let me know your thoughts. This is inspired by the American collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts; specifically, Martin Johnson Heade's oil painting, Hummingbirds and Orchids ( My piece is done with gouache paint trying to look like oil paint. Like my other pieces, I am going to add pen & ink elements to this. Stay tuned.
