My Painted Mola

When I painted this I did not think to paint a mola and only realized it when it was finished. I lived in Panama for 30 years but never thought to paint an intricate mola but I like this and think turned out well.  I did paint a mola on a table that I sent to Hawaii

Cut not the wings of your dreams for they are the heartbeat and the freedom of your soul

An old friend feeling philosophical and sharing his thoughts with me,

Thanks, Raju!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I swoon for Red paint doesn’t everyone?

This came together well, I like the shapes and the colors,  I think it has good energy. I like painting in red.  The resin finish turned out perfect like glass.

I  will paint more like this with abstract shapes and coordinated colors in red

 

 

 

 

Learning Ribbon Painting

I ‘ve been watching videos on UTube by Mr. M Lang who is an incredible abstract painter and generously shares his techniques online.  I haven’t learned the ways of shading yet and my work doesn’t resemble his work but I am having a good time trying.
