Mulberry. Mixed Media. 12"x12".
This is a work in progress. It started as the first of a series, and once I had finished the third painting I realized that I had to return to this one. If the lighting is good tomorrow, I'll be able to photograph the other two works in this series that I've finished.
I'm going to try to post at least once a week, but as we are preparing to move you'll have to bear with me if I fall short of this goal. I will have to put painting on hold in order to pack up my studio at some point. And just so you know, I hate packing. It creates a level of anxiety that should be reserved for really terrifying things, like jumping out of airplanes or sticking your head in the mouth of a lion.

Sweet gum. Acrylic, 24" x 36".
Lately I've been taken with the shapes and shades of nature. I have been trying to record the trees around our home, because that is what I believe I will miss the most after we have moved. I love the way leaves filter light, the shadows created by a tangle of branches, and how trees offer a visual clue to the changing of the seasons.

The Flood. Acrylic paint, 24" x 36".
This one was a wee bit tricky to photograph, because it is so shiny & reflective. This was the first work I did after finishing my landscape series. Clearly I was still stuck on the landscape format (see the horizon at the bottom?).

Virginia. Mixed Media.
This is one of many digital photos I took today of completed work that I have inhabiting my studio.
This piece bubbled up out of the nostalgia one has for familiar places--in this case, the state of Virginia where I did most of my "growing up".
