up next ...

I'm thinking Spring in Chicago (with ice ultimately to fall on new buds) and Nancy Switzer's delicious reflective paintings - love love love!

have a great weekend!

"Fourth" and "Fifth"

This entire series and the process of using a tiny painting to paint a larger one has been amazing for me!

"Fourth" 48x48

"Fifth" 48x48
It was such a great experience translating tiny brushstrokes into large areas of flat color .... 

and though it's a departure from my normal painting style...

 I am IN LOVE with how the exaggerated areas of paint and color ... 

emphasize how color shapes come together to make the image ....

and of course, the paint is so thick and buttery, I just want to eat it! :)
