It’s time to run away for a bit. Gonna do a little fishing and exploring! Gonna hang with friends too, recharge and just enjoy the summertime before starting my big Autumn push.

 

I’ll begin posting again in September! Hope you have the finest summer too!

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!

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?

As is so often the case lately, things are super busy – especially so as I continue to prep for a big exhibition this Autumn/Winter!! More info on that will come soon.

 

Also, ants are still putting on attitudes, sometimes dancing and even occasionally turning into a mountain!

 

Yep. Didn’t know they could do that but so they can. Actually the last mountain picture (below) started as a moth, so apparently other insects have this super power too!

Wow – time does fly and it’s busy, busy, busy. Thus no word here for far too long. Sorry!

 

I’m really done with ants now, but have a bunch still to go as show-n-tell. Gotta say – there is some pretty fine mark making in these.

 

Lots of new stuff is now on the boards. You’ll see soon!

I feel like I’ve drawn every ant in the gang – but it’s easy to concentrate on working my brush when I’m painting such intrinsically graphic little critters. Fair warning – for the sake of art safety: some of these troublemakers have gone rogue! I ‘spect we’ll be seeing even more of that.

Some are pretty good – and it seems ants can be playful, even a little surreal or elegant!

But I am wondering if they’re going to overstay their welcome? Still, I keep making ’em – one more I will have reached 200! The last two are especially odd – or maybe wonderful?

My little buddies, the Ants, have popped up again. It’s kind of a surprise – – – and they’re more gestural and abstract than ever!
