"Wandering" - a work in process? Acrylic and charcoal on cradled wood panel, 30" x 40" x 1.5". Ready to hang.
It was a wild and crazy week in the studio, with an Instagram takeover at Portland Open Studios and continued progress toward a passel of KaBOBS (unicorn-inspired art).
The takeover theme for the day was AMUSE/A-MUSE. To entertain, and to seek inspiration. One of the modern day aspects of being an artist is learning to use the visual tools of social media, video and video editing, which sometimes has me crawling back underneath the blankets. But it is a great stretch to see what can be done when you put your mind to it, and so here's a little glimpse of what happened when I was both amusing and a-musing. :)
To the right, a (maybe?) work in process. Which means I haven't yet decided if I'm going to splatter it with hot pink and destroy all of its realism. I am enjoying its expansive capture of a beach wander, as it is a big piece in the studio. But you just never know what the muse will whisper in my ear....

A little conversation about horizon lines.
I'd love to know what YOUR eye is drawn to in landscape/seascape paintings?
A peek inside the inspiration pic, the painting and where my mind rests when creating a seascape. Along with a little happy music for your day!
