Two 10 minute paintings

Red and Orange oil 5x7 and Orange Fields oil 5x7

I did these two paintings Saturday after all my students left. I didn't have a lot of time but really wanted to paint. It is fun to paint quickly some times. It great for a warm up or just to scratch an itch.

Abstracts 0ne Two and Three

Mixed media 12x12, 11x14 and 11x14

I took an abstract collage class and had so much fun. I had never done this before. It was harder than I thought. You have really plan to get the composition just right. I collaged with some of my unsucessful paintings. I just ripped them up worked with the composition glued the pieces down and painted on top of them. I am happy with the results.
