"Sunshine #2"
Acrylic on Wood

A variation on an earlier jewel. This one's a bit larger, with more work invested in it. There is a great deal more texture work on this piece than on "Sunshine". This was a piece that stumped me for a while, before it became another "Sunshine".

"Bouncing the Blue"
Acrylic on Fiberboard

Why yes, it IS a new jewel. Thanks for noticing.

Wow, what a weekend. A good friend got married and I was the best man. It was fun, but exhausting. I can't imagine how tired they must be.

I went a little brighter with this one, adding the cadmium red and magenta just to bounce the blue a bit. It's a bit of a marriage between my previous two jewels.

I'm going to make a concerted effort to post more jewels until my month-long furlough in July.

Blue Rectangle
Acrylic on Fiberboard

Wholly crap! What's this? A new jewel? Could it be? Yes, it is. Things the past two weeks have really picked up in the acting department; auditions, meetings, & new headshots have all prevented me from painting and posting. I found today that having been away from it for a short time gave me a fresh perspective when I sat down at the easel. Did it totally change the end result? Mmmmm, not much. It's more of a feeling I had when I approached today's jewel. We'll see if the freshness translates into anything different or worthwhile.

"Fish in a Barrel"
Acrylic on fiberboard

No, you're not going crazy. There is no fish, no barrel. It's just that, sometimes, rarely, I sit my butt down, paint, and it's like hair dye... wait for it... Nice 'n Easy. (groan) Anyway, today was such a day. Granted, I did most of the heavy lifting on this one last week and just added the contrast today, and the fact that it was "easy" doesn't reflect any feelings I have towards it. No judgements. Not good. Not bad. It just, is. That said, I don't hate it. I haven't broken new ground with this one, (as illustrated by 4/9's post) but it was good to get one in the ol' "Finito" column.

"Blue Run"
Acrylic on Fiberboard

There is a simplicity with this piece that pleases me.
