I love it when trees take over my brain! They always seem to do it when my painting ability jumps up a notch. Interesting, huh?

Well hello!

 

I’m still doing exaggerated, abstracted blooms, although an occasional single leaf also happens. And now, trees and blooming branches are popping up again too – but that’s show-n-tell for my next post!

How strange – work done just months ago already seems so old. I guess that’s what happens when I move this fast!

If I told you how many pictures I’ve done this week, you’d say, “Nope, that’s not possible!”

 

But it is, and the week’s still going. Many of these were done as a last response and quick sketch of older unfinished work that is being consigned to the scrap pile. What a great way to have a few more moments with what I liked about work that otherwise failed.

Hope you’ll pardon the quick studio snapshots – I’m on a roll and it’s better to have a brush in my hand than a camera! Some of these still need a little fussing and several more are on the boards this morning, So – keep an eye out – much more is coming!

Weird ants are still hanging around. Every time I think I’m about done with ’em, I’m wrong!

Moth and butterfly wings have captured my attention – or more specifically, the gazillion ways I might paint them have!

 

I keep thinking I should do more with picture composition. Or perhaps it bugs me (pun alert!) that each time I do one of these, it ends up on the paper in the same basic pose and shape anybody drawing a b-fly would use? Huh. Is that maybe the point? Maybe the simple pose IS the graphic for these little flappers – and it comes down then to what you do next with it?
