Our first market day for my sister Shar and myself at the “Four Seasons” farmers market, in Richardson Texas.

We sold Paintings,

Shar’s beautiful Roux Rocks,

Ceramic Coasters

Note Cards made with images of my Paintings.

It was hot but we used a tent and a grid for hanging my paintings.

 We have a list of what we need to do better next Saturday.

But the best part was the People, the friendly Vendors,

and the Opportunity.

 

Acrylic Pours

Acrylic Pours

For a While, I was excited about making acrylic pours.  It was a very messy project with paint running all over and trying to stop it at exactly the right moment to produce imaginative shapes and colors was a challenge.  Finally, I decided that this was less am art and more chemistry.  The appropriate mix of chemicals to produce a pleasing or interesting painting. Some magnificent, some a mess.

 

 

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

I did paint a mola on a table. that I sent to Hawaii to a family that had lived in Panama they saw my table they asked me to send it to them, it was a gift.

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.
