The Melt


Acrylic, 24 x33
Here is the first of my new series, based on Leighton center and the foothills. I'm trying to loosen up and use the palette knife with more paint and varied strokes. I still have lots of stuff to work out, but I've made a revelation about my work direction and am inspired by my new favorite artist, Lynn Boggess.
This painting is still wet and I'm not sure if I'm done with it yet, you can see the reference photo in my second latest post. Let me know what you think.

I really do love your new painting... it has a lot of movement and energy in it. Definitely holds my attention. I wish it had more bold colours in it, though.

Linda, this is my favourite of the two pond paintings. Although I enjoyed the beautiful color on the latest one, I think I like this best because the landscape format. This format makes it easier for my eye to avoid sliding down the strong diagonal line of the water... the tree stops the slide and takes me back in. Very nice!
