Driftwood and Sunset paintings.



Click to buy

 While living in Juneau, Alaska I spotted this interesting driftwood tree on Douglas island and made a pencil sketch of it. And a couple of days ago I made a small painting (just discovered that Georgia O'Keefe's Blue II looks somewhat similar, but much bigger size. Nice to have some similarities with famous. LOL ). So here it is, Driftwood,  9x12 inches, acrylic on canvas panel:





Another painting I did yesterday also has Alaskan origin - Sunset in Juneau, Alaska. It looks almost tropical, so bright colors.
9x12 inches, painted on canvas panel with acrylic, varnished.

Daily paintings. Colorful Butterflies.

After a "short" (in terms of eternity) time I am continuing my art blog.

My new painting routine is to produce small daily paintings. I often paint several at a time--like a warm up exercise--then give attention to those I like the most.

Also I am moving on to more non-traditional techniques, like painting with fingers, which  include scratching with fingernails, scraping with a palette knife, and/or using a new medium I recently discovered: water soluble crayons.  You can dip them in water and draw on canvas or paper; like watercolor pencils. 

After visiting the butterfly garden at the Seattle Center, I was inspired to paint butterflies.  I never had painted them before... I don't know why.  I love butterflies! And dragonflies!!!... By the way. (Mental note to myself - will paint them someday).

 I didn't try to do any particular kind of butterfly, although I used some photos taken in the garden for reference.

Here is the first group----

I would be delighted to know what do you think about my new way of painting.

Painting. Happy light bulb.

 Happy light bulb, acrylic on canvas 7.5x9.5 in

This is my entry for Daily Paintworks challenge. It was fun and hard to capture lots of reflection on the light bulb. I tried to make it more happy and colorful. Painting is done with acrylic on canvas glued to masonite board and finished in protective polymer varnish.
