I am trying to be better about letting go of my artwork.
They sometimes feel (just a little) like children in the sense that it is hard to accept that I have done all I can do before I send them out into the world! But letting go is a good thing! I want to be constantly moving forward and discovering new ideas and possibilities, whether on a canvas or in a piece of jewelry or in a random found object. Ideas flood my mind everyday, I only hope to have a lifetime to do them all!
Finally, letting go....
an all time favorite painting of mine....

A new set of paintings...
Edges are simply an extension of the front of the canvas!
2 8x10 canvases, acrylic paint.
texture and patterns
depth through various layers.
My signature blends in well so these paintings can be hung in any direction.
My most recent painting....
An abstract painting with beautifully rich colors!
My favorite color - chartreuse green!
The color palette also includes; reds, pinks, violets, turquoise blues, whites, and a little orange and black!
I am thrilled with this piece because the texture of the overlapping colors is so cool!
No two places are exactly the same on this canvas!
A closeup of the organic shapes within organic shapes!
What does it look like to you?
There is no wrong answer here, abstract paintings will look different to everyone.
I see shells, maybe oyster shells. It reminds me of the beach...
I used some recycled materials for stamping and also painted around, both inside and outside the shapes for added depth.
Edges, almost as important as the front of the canvas!
These 3 paintings are in need of good homes!
I have listed them for sale in my etsy shop -
It is time...
still growing personally and learning to let go on this artist holiday,
