Trying to Stick to One Theme
I have been involved with painting for many years and have jumped around from creating nonrepresentational images to realistic scenes. I love both styles of art. This past summer I built a studio at our cottage and spent many days working in my studio. We live on the shores of a gorgeous lake and over the summer I took many photographs of pickerel weeds and water lilies that sit close to the shoreline. So, I began creating paintings on canvas using acrylic paints. My first painting was exciting and I decided to continue with that direction. I plan on creating 20 pieces in different sizes. So, I have included the first four paintings below.
First painting of the shoreline. This is acrylic on a 24″ X 48″ size canvas.
Second painting of pickerel weeds found along the shoreline. Painting is acrylic on a 30″ X 30″ size canvas.
Third painting of pickerel wends on a 30″ X 30″ canvas using acrylic paint.
Fourth painting of waterlilies and pickerel weeds on the shore of our lake. Canvas is 30″ X 30″ and acrylic paint.
