Dogs dogs and a cat
"I never finish a painting -- I just stop working on it for a while." -- Arshile Gorky
I have been painting lots of animals in the past month or so - getting ready for my show that is now up at the Ft Pierce Downtown Library. I love to paint animals - so much texture and subtle color changes, and their eyes so full of emotion and life. These are all watercolors on various papers - Arches, Waterford Saunders, cold press, rough, 140#, and 300#. I enjoy the different paper textures and weights as each painting is an experiment with paint - with light and shadow - and it's fun - a grown taller way of play. This past week I painted 2 small pieces and got about half way through a bigger piece - need to take some photos.
I also find myself getting a bit back into mixed media and scrapping so you will be seeing some new things - off to play a bit today. Have fun and enjoy your day!
