Near Devil's Thumb

"Near Devil's Thumb"
6" x 6"
Oil on sheet canvas
Near Devil's Thumb resort is a creek that reflected the sky with passionate resolve. I suppose the fact that the sky cooperated fully in the creek's amusement helped. 

This was done from a compilation of memories—color, edges, texture, shapes and the essence of place. It is different from my photographed pieces in that it was done entirely from the heart, almost like plein air.

I'm happy you stopped by today. Really, I am.

Water Lilies

"Water Lilies"
8" x 8"
Acrylic mixed media
In a world where lilies bloom in shades of sapphires and rubies, and their leaves are burnished in coppers and golds, tranquility is as common as sand.

I changed the color of the lily pads to match a particular copper paint I wanted to use, and the blooms went along for the ride.  I accepted their choice in the matter and accented the piece with a spiral sun-like swirl.

By the way, the "Adam's Grapes" painting was not spotted by my son.  He missed the opportunity to receive the piece as a gift from his ol' Mom.

Thank you for looking.
