6 Paintings!

Figured I would just upload everything in one post.

Let's start with the works in progress.



11 x 14 canvas. I started this piece as just trying out some different techniques. Not sure where it's headed, but having fun. I used palette knives for the background and brushes for the leaves.




12 X 48 ... I think? On MDF. Inspired by music I was listening to and the desire to explore texture as well as metallic colors. Not sure where this one is headed either.




11 x 14 canvas. Another painting I am working on for my daughter's room. Getting a lot faster and looser with these. I like seeing progress in myself.



Now for the finished pieces.





11 x 14 canvas. The second painting I did for my daughter's room. I know I kind went crazy with the background. I drank a lot of coffee and just let it "flow".




12 x 12 canvas. I was watching some Patti Brady videos as wel as some decorative wall techniques and kinda just, threw them together. It was a fun experiment.




12 x 48 (I think) canvas . This is another piece based on a Karrie Evenson video. Had a lot of fun with this one too!


C and C is always welcome.

Re: 6 Paintings!

Some fun here!
I do like the giraffe
I also like the impression of snails racing in the last one

The experiments with metallic colours and textures look good.

I love the metallic swirl! Simple yet awesome! But then, I am a sucker for metallic colors too.... The giraffe is cute too and I LOVE the background, very busy, very fun! I can't wait to see how the cat is going to turn out!

Re: 6 Paintings!

Thank you everyone! Uhm, they are peppers, btw, not snails. o_O Now I am all self-concious... do they look like snails?

I'm glad everyone likes the giraffe! ^__^ Can't wait to get it hung up in my daughter's room!

Any thought on where to go with the red/gold spiral? I feel like I want to do more... I'm just not sure where to go, you know?

Re: 6 Paintings!

I think the giraffe is very charming and will look great in a child's room. Strangely , I am attracted to the spiral one. I like the textures and the fact that the music inspired you to paint it. Interesting work.

Re: 6 Paintings!

Lots of movement for a bunch of snails racing. I like the iridescent paints and to be able to use that much red is always a win win. Well done on all of them.
