Studio Lights

"Studio Lights"
8x10 oil on stretched canvas

My studio is located in the Sandpaper Factory and I've long thought of doing a painting of the hallway which has sawtooth skylights on the roof which are just fabulous to look at as well as being functional. Such a great abstract subject.
As you walk down this hallway the lights in my studio are visible over the drywall so I called this painting, "Studio Lights". 
The Girls Just Wanna Paint subject this month is "the golden mean" which is a mathematical something or other which I don't understand well enough to define it, nor do I know whether this painting is an example of it. 
Check out the Girls' paintings to see how everyone handled it.

Cozy Harbor, Maine

Cozy Harbor
8x10 oil on canvas

This is just one of many sweet little harbors tucked away all over the coast of Maine. I would have liked the tide to be lower because I think that makes the painting more interesting, but you get what you get.
I am planning a return to my Monhegan "garret" in early June!

top right!

11x14 oil on canvas

My sister left me these tulips as a welcome present and I painted them in acrylic which is a new medium for me. 

I really like the smoothness of the paint. 
Because it dries quickly, but not as quickly as I thought it did, you can work over it and the under layer shows through.
I'll post a step by step of the next tulip painting. 
Stay tuned.

Sitting on Top of the World

"Sitting on Top of the World"
8x8 paper and paint collage

This collage is my take on "Chair" for the
Girls Just Wanna Paint
I thought I was on this but after several attempts I resorted to cutting out the chair working with the stamps again. I love working with the sheet music.
My New Years resolution is to not procrastinate. 
We'll see how that goes as it's in my DNA.
