Color the Night

"Color the Night"

 12x12 Oil on canvas.

I should be glad of loneliness
And hours that go on broken wings,
A thirsty body, a tired heart
And the unchanging ache of things,
If I could make a single song
As lovely and as full of light,
As hushed and brief as a falling star
On a winter night.
~Sara Teasdale


16x20 Oil on canvas

Oh, you've got a fire and its burning in the rain....

12x16 Oil on stretched canvas

This is my first abstract painting and it came about simply because I hated my painting. I went to wipe it out completely or mostly and kind of liked the effect. Hence...this. I used a mixture of brushes, paper towels and my fingers. Painted from a photo I took in Charleston. Love that city!

I painted this at night...first time painting at night. I just always feel like I need fresh sunlight to paint but I like how this one turned out.

Spacious Place

Spacious Place
18x24 Oil on stretched canvas.

I love how this one turned out. The photo does not capture the color quite right so it looks better in real life. I was trying to focus more on form than detail and also get into the habit of using alot of paint.

The title comes from Psalm 18:19 and 2 Sam. 22:20
He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.

Safe Place

"Safe Place"
24x30 Oil on stretched canvas.

When asked about the safety of the character I replied that the tree is the safe place. She's safe but that doesn't mean she's unaffected by the storm.

Tropical Mess

"Tropical Mess"
22x28 Oil on stretched canvas

This is the first big piece I've done in a while. It always takes me a while to adjust to painting so big after doing a lot of little paintings. I didn't like this one when I first started but I reminded myself to slow down and work on each smaller section at a time. In the end I really enjoyed the outcome.

Tawa's comment on it was "looks very tropical" hence the title. :)
