Still wet - the beautiful Gulf. The gradation of colors is the star of this show! I put the oil rigs in because it's an important part of the Texas landscape, and kept everything close to the blue line as that's really the subject.
These colors are difficult to photograph. The painting fairly glows with its layers of colors which can't be picked up in a photograph. 18x24" on gallery wrapped canvas.
I scribbled a couple, cut them out, and moved 'em all over the canvas for decisions on placement. :)
Layers of gorgeous color. Love.

Working on abstracts and backgrounds all day today. LOVE abstracts! I was landing on using this one for a background tomorrow, but I like it so much as it is, I'm having a hard time thinking about covering most of it up!
I may not be able to cover it at all.

Now and then I'll do a self portrait, to keep myself honest, because I always make my students do them. This one took a marker and 20 minutes. I named it 'Workday Do with Piratey Earring,' but is better known to me as my Sarah Palin Portrait. Yikes!
Just remember, markers don't erase, so you have to be forgiving about all the quirks and just consider them charming!

Ya know those blow up highway guys? Couldn't resist #painting them! One for every mood! For sale - Colorcatstudios101.etsy.com
I didn't set out to paint them; we were sitting in our car eating a nice Panera lunch, looking across the lot at one of these guys. It was like dinner and a show! I did a quick sketch. Then another. My sandwich got cold. I did another. Before I knew it, I'd filled up three pages of blow up guys and thought... 'I could paint this...'

These are some of the sets I painted for Reconsteucting Alice. Note: that is a ten foot ladder. At one point I was standing on TOP of it in front of the inactive speaker mounted up in the front corner. Melody finished running the practice and blazed the music into my face! I almost went for a very short flight!!!
She wanted a post apocalyptic style.
These are all painted in front of the red curtain. I'll show you what I painted on the stage walls next time. Until then!
