My Paintings

Ok people.  Hope I'm not boring you to death with these new paintings??  I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to be painting abstract again!!!  I think I was in a rut and just needed some new inspiration.  Call it Spring in the air or Pinterest-ha!, but I've got the itch to paint all day long (if I could!!!!!)    So here we go.  Finally got a few framed and up to Novel. 

Really bad glare:(

Did a little painting with my littlest

I was amazed how well Mr. Big did with the paintbrush and watercolors! It is a total toss up at his age-he will be 2 on Easter Day!  But he actually dipped in the paint, painted paper, dipped in water, dipped in paint, etc...never muddying the colors.  I have to admit I am one of those people whose blood pressure rises when I see all the colors being mixed together without a rinse in between-then everything is brown you know!  I know, horrible and I do consciously try to sit back and encourage whatever they want to do.  Are any of you like that?  Where you want to jerk the paper out from under them before they "ruin" it with a big muddy brushstroke??!!!!  I do it.  I can't help it sometimes.  I always say, "let me get you a clean piece of paper" and trade it out.  

Here is an example of a piece both boys worked on together.  Great idea in theory.  Things quickly got out of hand and a lot of whining and crying ensued about who was painting on whose side, so before a huge hole appeared from intentional big brother heckling, I jerked it out from under them and took it inside to dry.  Guess who was the only one left smiling?

A few more framed pieces

And a neon collection that are in need of frames.

Anyone else out there painting or creating anything fun?

yay!!! Love that you got your creativity back, me too! I'm really loving those neon colors with the white frames. I plan to use simple white frames with some of my newest pieces too.

Incredible! I've been in a painting mood too you inspired me. And yes I totally get anxious when Sterling mixes all the colors together. I mean what do I think that he's gonna create a masterpiece at 2!
