more feathers

"Feathers 4"

For the longest time I've been wanting a painting for above our bed. I have had several tries and finally decided we needed something big. Much bigger than I have painted before. Even once I'd decided on the canvas I didn't get it right first time.

But this one? I'm so very happy with this one :-)

Now all I need to do is move the hook so the picture hangs above the middle of the bed.

new painting available - fathom

"Fathom" - dreamy, abstract seascape on canvas

There is a lovely depth to this painting. Painted in many layered glazes of turquoise, blue, magenta and yellow over a textured and colllaged surface. The collage pieces are pretty, esoteric circles. These are matched by the drips, drawn circles and textured circles throughout the canvas. This painting is calm and dreamy, reminiscent of a deep blue ocean.
