Dreaming of Perfection, a bold, abstract metallic tree

I'm going through a personal journey right now, and the emotions from that are appearing in my work.

This painting is titled "Dreaming of Perfection" and what the camera fails to capture is the way the piece changes when the light hits the leaves on the tree. As you walk past this painting, the angle of the light will make it look like the leaves are shimmering on the tree.

Bold, vibrant colors along with jewel toned metallics make this painting really sparkle. It's a new technique I have started, and my clients are incredibly pleased with the results.

This, along with another dream sequence piece will be available in my ebay store.

Horse on Purple - Daily equine color study on purple and blue

I love this little horse. His form goes back to a more primitive style, which really pops against the bold hues of aqua and purple.

Colorful Hummingbird - a daily color study of a hummingbird in flight

Lately I've been blogging a lot on another site, so I apologize for not sharing more on my daily painter's blog.

Today's piece is to celebrate the gradual move toward springtime. It's a 5x7 painting of a hummingbird in flight. Lots of vibrant, rich colors capture the spirit of these festive little guys.

The sun is shining and my husband has been working in the yard all day. I am ready for spring and summer.... ready for fushia planting next Saturday and digging in my flower beds.

Band of Brothers - an abstract, knife painted horse equine painting

"Band of Brothers" c2007

This past week has been crazy trying to balance my new workout schedule and painting. I think I've figured out how to get a few hours of studio time in every day, and should be able to get more time in as the weather gets nice enough to where I can move my easel and paints outside.

Today's painting is another knife/spoon painted horse abstract. I love this color palette, so calming, but filled with energy at the same time.

The other piece I had similar to this one was sold to one of my favorite collectors, a wonderful woman who is a veterinarian in Tennessee. She has a number of my horses hanging in her home, and thanks to her gift giving, her friends do, too!

I hope to have more listed tomorrow! We'll see how early I get done at the gym tonight, and if I get my preschool newsletter completed.
