Summer Dreams

11" x 14", Acrylic       

I am in the summer mode! Also in the experimental mode. :-) This is from an exercise in a book I just love: Realistic Abstracts, by Kees van Aalst. So many cool ideas in there! And lots of inspiration. I have a similar one in the works with a different color scheme. We'll see how that one turns out.  

I also just returned from a 10-day visit with my dear friend in Columbus, OH. I miss my home!! *sob* We had a great time and the Columbus Arts Festival was going on so I was able to take that in. LOTS of gorgeous art to see and a few more ideas to take away from there (plus a very cool T-shirt)! 

My sister has commissioned me to do a painting (though I hope she doesn't seriously think I'm going to take money from her...) and I'm still kicking around ideas for that. Ahh, the pressure! ;-) We kind of agreed on one thing but now I'm re-thinking that idea. I'll have to have another conversation with her after looking over the ideas in this book...

I hope you all are having a great start to your weekend. As for me, I've got more painting to do!
