I've been super busy this week getting ready for my first outdoor art show and that combined w/downtime while WC servers were upgraded, haven't been able to upload this. It's 12 x 16" canvas, acrylics as usual, tried something new this time - used black canvas to stretch with instead of my usual white. And then just sealed it with some glazing medium prior to painting.

This is the painting I'll be working on during the event (try to!), mind you, I'll be more interested in visiting with the people for sure!

Anyway, the premise of this series (started with "Birch") is to focus on the rich textures and colors of the Autumn season allowing the images to take on an abstract quality.

This is based on an image of dried up Magnolia pods.

Well, I didn't actually work on this during the show after all. I felt as I was starting to paint that it was more important for me to interact with the people than to have my back to them. So, I've set this one aside for a little while as I've just bought my largest canvas yet - 36" x 48" to work on another in this series.

C_L,

Turned out beautiful. You retrieved the gold that I liked so much in stage one. I'm beginning to like abstract more and more. Hope your show turned out well. I can't imagine even trying to paint with someone watching. I love to play my electric piano, but only do it using head phones. :o

Thanks Jeanette, glad you like it. I like "abstracted" for sure.
