When the fog breaks

New abstract acrylic painting on canvas using softer colors and palette knife.  I love this!

The signed original is 16 x 20 x .75 on gallery wrapped canvas and is available directly from the blog at a discounted $395. Through Saatchi, it is offered at $1175. Saatchi also offers museum quality giclee prints and canvas prints too in case that interests you.

In addition to those prints, if you love this painting and think the design would fit your decor but want a more affordable option, other items, including notecards, other prints, throw pillows, duvet covers, shower curtains, tote bags, notebooks and cell phone covers, are available here.

>My first creature attempt


I decided I had gotten into this class to be able to illustrate a children’s story book based on my dog and my son Pete’s dog so, this being the last class of the session, I better darn well take a stab at canines. Here’s Smokey. I realize her eyes look evil and scary and hollow and I’ll have to do something about that, but I am sort of pleased with the overall shape and stance and all that. What do you think?

And on the other picture — remember, I work in pairs at least, since it takes them time to dry — I still had another seascape in me, as illustrated here. It is from a scene on one of the travel brochures from the Panhandle region of Florida. I murked up the water something bad, but did an OK job on the seashells, sandollars and bird prints, I think.
