"I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge---that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."  Ephesians 3:17-19

Fully Engaged

This collection of white objects all clustered with a golden pear made for an interesting afternoon.  I was in ellipse squeeze.  I was trying to use three disparate primaries.  My objective was to work fast, to get the composition and drawing going and then to paint like mad.    I did have fun doing this one, though.  12" x 12"

En Pointe

This is my prize-winning painting from the Midland show. I received this lovely photo from my friend. Shows up quite well in my Randy Higbee floater frame, n'est-ce pas?

Paint Pot

In this painting, I have veered into the addition of Cadmium Yellow Light.  The varieties are a little surprising to me.  I have also found that a photographed look at the painting is quite a bit different than the actual piece.  Is this a little like looking at the painting in the mirror?
Last week, I had the pleasure to meet, Carol Carmichael, a fellow traveler in this pursuit of painting.  Her studio is filled with her amazing artwork.  She has been painting a very long time, teaching art, encouraging others.  I'm hoping I will get to see her again in Birmingham.
