Summer has Arrived
a clean desk!
In the meantime, look at these fun works in progress and my clean desk! I had to take a picture of my desk because I couldn't believe how nice and inviting it can look. It is usually a huge mess with photos, clippings from magazines, tubes of paint everywhere, stacks of paintings in progress, etc.
Continuing with the Cafe series, I have the above works in progress on one completed painting. It looks like the Cafe series is taking a turn to anything with umbrellas present. I used a pouring technique as an under painting for the painting on top. It was very windy and the umbrellas were flapping in the wind. I like how the umbrellas look with this under painting, but, more work is needed.
Can you believe that "Summer has Arrived" was as light as the painting above it? I took the photo of this scene when leaving Martha's Vineyard by ferry. There was so much attraction on the dock and I loved the patterns the shadows made both in the foreground and at the buildings with white railing in the background.
I will continue on layering in transparent paint on the second painting to establish a path for the viewer's eye. It looks like we have a possible "snow" day tomorrow in Dallas. I hope so and then I can paint, paint, paint all day!!!!!!!
