This painting is a small dyptich. I have been working hard on portraits and landscapes and just wanted a change. I pulled out two small gallery wrap panels and applied a couple ribbons of color. It almost looks like a paisley print but everyone at the studio thought it looked like cowboy boots; thus the title Cowboy Paisley. It would be a cute decoration in a boy's cowboy room or a cabin in the mountains. I just liked the colors a lot and they sort of told themselves where to go like a lazy river.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. I will be getting ready for a show next weekend and may not have much to post so be patient with me.
I've been working on this painting since last Tuesday and it still needs something! Not quite sure what but I do love the crisp sails and the colorful Fall foliage. It was nice to paint water,that isn't ocean water, for a change.
I'm also painting these little mascot paintings for the Hyer Christmas Bazaar that the kids will love but are BORING!!!!( to paint)
Even though their shirt and dress are white, there are many reflected colors in them as well as their faces. I put several glazes on their tops and faces as well as hair. Yellow, green as well as purple and a bronzy - orange!
Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog. Hope you're enjoying this fabulous weather.
It is always relaxing to paint a landscape after a stressful painting. I started and am almost finished with this lovely northern seascape. It is where I would like to go and just chill out for a couple days.
I was born in Dallas, Texas quite a while ago. Went to school in Dallas and college in Denver,Colo. Now I live in Highland Park, a small suburb of Dallas.
I worked for DISD for 30 years and now I'm starting my second profession. Started this blog to showcase some of my paintings and hear from others. Especially those who like what they see!
