#1288 Let Dreams Through. Watercolor collage, 5×3.5 matted to fit 7×5″ frame.

 

Here are another couple babies from the bin.   For the first painting, I was definitely in my right brain when I was inspired to name it. On the second one, I just love the way I’ve been able to find the clouds that flow throughout the collage.

#1283 Jump for Joy. Watercolor collage 5×3.5″ in 7×5″ mat. $25.

It’s been such a dry year for sales, I’ve not needed to create too much.  Nevertheless sometimes I just can’t hold back.  Thought I’d do a batch of small impulse-purchase sized works at $25 a pop.  Indeed there were a couple of impulses succumbed to in the last couple shows.  Here are a few of the ones that haven’t quite impulsed people yet.

Mixed media painting

#1271 Night watch. Mixed media on solid pine panel, 14×24″. $250.

This is the last of the current batch of cloud-shaped paintings  Theoretically the shape is great for a kids room, but not necessarily the poem written in it, if you want your child to ever sleep:

Night Watch
Stars between clouds
a night to stay up and watch
until the sun rises.

Spontaneity

My other half is, like me, clumsy.  We buy glasses etc at Goodwill because then we never get upset when, inevitably, they are broken.  I like it that we are both clumsy because neither can give the other a hard time about it.  The other day I saw that one of his newer polo shirts had been used during a bleaching phase in the laundry and had two huge and several smaller bleached areas.  OK, so I should’ve taken a before pic but you can figure out which were the accidental areas as he leaned against the washer then took off the shirt and let the front accident soak through to the back.  I figured at this point there was nothing to lose from making a piece of art from it.
