Weekly Painting Week 86 Abstract OBX

obx abstract

One of the things I love most about painting- there are no rules! Stop when you want, or keep going. When is it done? When the painting escapes your easel. Outer Banks, acrylic on canvas, 12 x 24″

Sold this one to a collector this week- awesome! 🙂

Weekly painting Week 61- Love and Loss a Seascape with the Morning Star

Morning Star and the Sea

Morning Star- Oil on Canvas 10 x 20″

Sometimes the loss is great..so is the love. Look in the top left, you will see the Morning Star. There you are. (click on the image for a bigger view)

With that, I give you the words of Tolkien, in a beautiful poem:

Day is ended, dim my eyes, 

but journey long before me lies.

Farewell, friends! I hear the call.
The ship’s beside the stony wall.
Foam is white and waves are grey;
beyond the sunset leads my way.
Foam is salt, the wind is free;
I hear the rising of the Sea.

Farewell, friends! The sails are set,
the wind is east, the moorings fret.
Shadows long before me lie,
beneath the ever-bending sky,
but islands lie behind the Sun
that I shall raise ere all is done;
lands there are to west of West,
where night is quiet and sleep is rest.

Guided by the Lonely Star,
beyond the utmost harbour-bar,
I’ll find the heavens fair and free,
and beaches of the Starlit Sea.
Ship, my ship! I seek the West,
and fields and mountains ever blest.
Farewell to Middle-earth at last.
I see the Star above my mast!

Weekly Painting Week 19- Complimentary Color and Abstract Landscape

My continued fascination with all things Southwest. Amazing how there are 6B people on the planet and still there are places this empty. Gigantic clouds rise high in the sky and the desert looks so vast. Orange and blue contrast to make each seem more vivid. This painting is 30 x 40, a nice size for the subject. Oil on canvas
