Abstracts and Art Journaling


I took a little break from blogging and really enjoyed the summer.  It was a busy one but I still made time for art.  I painted a number of  new abstracts on paper.  The two above were one painting that I cut into two 5 x 7″ pieces and mounted onto wood panels.


I bought a new art journal in June when I went on my annual trip to Nashville Indiana.  I certainly didn’t need another journal but it was calling my name.  I have been playing in it quite a bit.  It’s a Dylusions journal and I really like the paper.  I’ll share some of the pages that I am working on in another post.

Happy Fall!



Here are the other abstracts that I mentioned in my previous post.  It’s a set of two paintings that I have name Obscured.  These are larger than most of my paintings at 20 by 20 inches.  They are on a gallery wrapped canvas that has 1 1/2 inch deep sides that are painted black.  I used mainly acrylic paints and charcoal pencil.  I had a lot fun making scribbles with the charcoal pencil and then somewhat obscuring the marks with paint.


Happy Friday!
