daily works...

Acrylic on 8" x 8" x 3/4" wrap canvas

I like being able to offer a variety of different sizes to choose from for those interested in collecting a work for their home or office.  For me, it can be be almost more difficult working on a mini canvas than the wide open space of a large canvas.  The change from large to small or vice a versa has always been good, though.  Lately, I have found myself working on more than one painting at a time.  I have found this to give me a break and a fresh perspective from a particular work and it seems to help loosen me up into the creative mode.  However way, always hoping to create works that are beautiful and will be enjoyed by others.  Available works can be seen in my Web Gallery: HERE.

....we've also been growing food to be enjoyed!  yum yum We have been up EARLY each morning  putting about an hour of work into this garden.  Now, the harvest has begun!  There are cucumbers, green beans, peppers, LOTS, LOTS of squash and just yesterday the first red tomato!  It's been, I believe the best garden we've ever had as usually what begins enthusiastically ends by mid-summer when we are overwhelmed  and it's hot. The secret has been keeping after it, doing a little each day.

Much like painting!  

Thought you might enjoy a few garden pics:

I really liked the painting. It almost reminded me of some kind of thermal imaging and it was pleasing and disorienting to my eyes.

Nice garden pics!
