Paint Party Friday - Finished Last 2/4 Paintings!

Happy Easter everyone!

The abstracts I started earlier this year are finally finished! And they are even hanging on my living room wall (and the nutcracker suite of paintings put away until next December...)... Yay! It really feels good to finally finish something. Here are the last two - oblongs vs bubbles...

I also started doodling flowers from watercolour crayon smears. It feels happy. (I think winter has been far too long for me this year!) I did these before reading Kristin's post about the doodling/abstracted flowers tutorial. Interesting timing...

Shades of Pink

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be by to visit as I can.

  4. Your abstract paintings are beatuiful! They look fabulous together on the wall. I've also been taking Carla Sonheim's Flower Crazy class. Flowers are in my mind. Your crayon smear flowers (water soluble crayons?) are very cheerful! Spring is coming!

  29. Beautiful paintings--the design reminds me a little of tiffany lamps or butterfly wings. And I think you were right to paint the edges. It definitely gives it something extra.

    (And I've been feeling the urge to paint flowers too--love yours.)

  42. I've never been into abstracts but I have to say these look really great on the wall. I think being a series and not just a lone painting gives them lots of impact. They are perfect for the space and, a little unexpectedly, I like them a lot.
