Minneola #3

A bit of rule-breaking in this marbleized version, which
allowed me to splash the colors around a bit.
I really like the result!

STARTING OVER - Minneola #2

Minneola #2

Here we go again. A mosaic-style treatment, 
holding to just three values. Boy, I love doing these!

STARTING OVER - Minneola #1

Minneola #1

Went to a plein air paint-out this week after four months
of no painting. The result was a disaster though I may still
try to save it. Anyway, I decided to start all over with an orange again
and hopefully get the feel of that fast, juicy, loose way of painting once more.

This one reminds me of the Navajo jewelry featuring the Thunderbird.
 I used to sigh over the display at Jenny Lake Lodge in what is now Grand Teton Nat'l Park, 
and especially loved that design.

Foggy Crossroad

Blues & blue-violets. I love the foggy, kind of smeared, look of this one.

Which Way?

Blue and green are, perhaps, my favorite colors (it sort of depends on the day
 of the week and the phase of the moon). This one was fun to do. 
I'm beginning to really love abstracts.
