Week In Review 4/29-5/3

This was probably my most productive week ever!  Thanks to nearly perfect weather all week, I was able to really dedicate myself to painting every day.

Monday I completed this painting...

This was a fun piece that incorporated wet/drip techniques, sgraffitto, and palette knife painting.  

On Wednesday I completed this painting...

And today (Friday) I worked on a larger canvas that is still a work in progress.  I like the movement and larger, gestural swatches of color.  I still want to keep working on this one, but hopefully I won't overwork it and lose some of that initial energy. Working on this piece makes me realize how much I want to work exclusively on larger scale canvases right now. 

You can find all of the above original paintings at

I'll be spending the weekend with my family so everything has been put on pause until Monday.  I hope you enjoy your weekend and Happy Spring!
