“stripe and square”

this is a 16″x 20″ acrylic painting on canvas. the background was painted with brushes and the shapes were done with palette knives. this was the first acrylic painting i’ve done in quite awhile. painting with acrylics (i don’t use oils because of the well known drawbacks.) on canvas is always a treat. i’d always do it that way, but i don’t have anywhere near enough storage space for piles and piles of canvases.

my husband tells me that my paintings look like great backgrounds, so i have been trying to have distinct structures in my work. i dunno. i think maybe i prefer the great background kind of painting. it’s what comes naturally.

we’ll see how things go. 😀

no more white walls!

recently i had some rooms painted in cool colors. that’s one of the best things about  owning your home is you can paint the walls be any color you want! so i  have  a bathroom that is grey, a purple bedroom, and a red  office.downstairs is all sage green. one bathroom is still white ack!  the master bathroom is a weird pinkish sandy color.

i’ve lived in this same house for 20 years! it was the first house we bought and we’re still here. i love my house! i can’t imagine wanting to leave!

i’m lucky to have a refuge like this! i’m grateful.     🙂
