I'm trying to do a painting a day. Here's today's quickie. There's a bit of a glare in the upper right hand corner.
Acrylic on canvas 11" x 14"

Re: Untitled

thanks, Kay. It's a terrible picture...quite difficult to photograph a good likeness because of the heavy texture, I guess.

Re: Untitled

I cannot conceive the steps to create this..
and that mystery makes it appeal to me.
I am not an artist who automatically looks at a painting and thinks
"Oh, I could do that!"
I am the guy who looks on in wonder and am glad this was shown here so I could just admire it.
This is quite original and cheerful
like Spring, as was mentioned.

Thanks fer sharin' dis wid us

Re: Untitled

This was a fun piece to paint...small, with no specific expectations, just playing.
Thanks for your looks and comments...I guess I'm still thinking of spring.
