This is as far as I got before I had to pack things up, transition a few things to home studio in case I get inspired to paint while I'm recuperating from surgery. Hope to be back again soon! I've resolved the major problems and feel pleased with the mood and areas of abstraction within this painting. Those were my goals when I set out to paint this scene, inspired by my plein air umbrellas of June 2nd, which also was revised!

Start, day 3
See how I switched the red and brought it next to the green bag. When you place complements next to each other, it's called simultaneous contrast.

The barest start of a new painting, 16x20, a beautiful linen canvas, and the idea of a beach scene with only a hint of people and an atmosphere that holds a question for the viewer.

At The Portsmouth Arts Guild this month, for a juried show titled "Abstractions".
This is 8x8 on cradled panel; the abstract shapes giving me opportunity to explore thick/thin application of paint.

A very foggy, dripping wet morning. The sky was so light with no color I could see. A painting challenge. You would think a 5x7 could be just whipped off, but nothing like that happened for me.
