Number 47 & 48

When I am painting I hate to waste paints. Anyone who creates probably understands exactly what I am talking about. Art supplies are expensive so I use as much as I can. For numbers 47 & 48 I was working on larger paintings and decided to make these little studies with the leftover paints. Again - I like dots.

yeah - I know - I love Palm Springs

Funny story about these three pieces. There were once other paintings but they did not sell. I liked the images but loved the frames more...so I did what any pragmatic person does - I covered the frames carefully in paper (I did not remove the paintings) and repainted the pieces. Again. Again. And finally Number 4. 

The thing about creating art is you need to accept when the pieces work and when they don't. I think I have that down. It took four times and now they worked. Then when I took the paper off and really got a clear view of what these pieces really looked like all I though was...PALM SPRINGS! the colors, the positive energy, the lack of seriousness. All they are missing are palm trees. So here you go. Palm Springs Vacay 1, 2,3
(all are available for purchase if you know anyone decorating their Palm Springs vacation home. :) )

Mountains and dots make up Number 44. I like the simple juxtaposition of sharp mountain angles with irregular shapes.

45 & 46

More acrylic on paper - and very watered down. I often use these small paintings as studies for larger ones. These did not eventually become larger paintings but just the same I like their ethereal feeling of lightness...

a little more pop

I ended up doing six of these bright florals...this way you can find a pair or a set to fit your wall space. If you like the style but are interested in a different color combo just let me know and I could create it for you. 

As always these pieces are available as prints here and here. For more custom images or on canvas just ask me and I will take care of it...
