I’m so lucky to have my photographer-husband Jim on site. Today he photographed three of my paintings, one of which I just finished yesterday. He’s usually pretty speedy about photographing my work when it’s ready, but this time he had a line-up of artwork by other artists to photograph, so the timing worked out especially well for me.
Here they are:
These are both part of my Water Reflection series. Rhythm in Blues is the painting I just completed yesterday.
Water in Scottsdale is part of my Nooks & Crannies series. A friend pointed out that I’m being clever–paintings of water and then a painting of a water drain cover. I hadn’t even thought of this. So no, not clever, but still, kind of a neat accidental connection. Photography of the paintings by James Cowlin. Thanks, Jim!
And here are a couple of my snapshots of two paintings I just started yesterday.
The painting above was going to be of Mexican sunflowers over a stencil I had painted onto the canvas. I got as far as the stencil part and then got busy, the sunflowers totally dried up and fell off the stems. There’s still a bit of the stencil showing through, but probably not clear enough for you to see. Maybe if the sunflowers come up again this summer, I’ll try to paint them again. Meanwhile, I’m excited about the start of this new water reflection and the one below.
Lots to do before my upcoming solo show at the Rancho Linda Vista Gallery here in Oracle on April 7th! We’ll see if these two get done or not. Ordinarily paintings take me several months to complete but you never know.
