New Paintings

It has been beautiful here and I've had the pleasure of doing a lot of painting the last couple of weeks in the screened in area of my studio. Whenever it gets to be August I get this anxious energy of "oh no! Summer is running out!" as if there's anything you can really do about the passage of time. It's been a great summer, and there will be plenty more fun times to come, I just wish it would streeeetttcchhh...

These are a couple of little texture paintings I'm working on. There are a handful more in the studio ready to go.

Pieces 1 - Acrylic on 6" x 6" box canvas

Pieces 2 - Acrylic on 6" x 6" box canvas

Midsummer Glow - Acrylic on 6" x 6" box canvas

Come to Life - Acrylic on 6" x 6" box canvas

I also have been working on two 22" x 28" canvases, and one is a work in progress that I don't have a picture of yet, and I finally finished this one yesterday.

Interwoven - Acrylic on 22" x 28" canvas

I don't know which way I like this hanging - they both work for me. What do you think?

I really like these textured paintings and I agree with that summer urgency... I love working on my screened porch or outdoors. The brevity of the season seems to make it even more special.
