Starting with some new little portraits:
Oliver Balkaner, acrylic on 5 x 7 inch wood panel.
The last name was chosen because my daughter thought it should begin with a "b" because he likes books. Totally made up of course.
Little Miss, acrylic on 3 x 5 inch wood panel.
Maribeth, acrylic on 5 x 7 inch wood panel.
Olive Little, acrylic on 4 x 4 inch wood panel.
And this new abstract:
An abstract of how I start my day, acrylic on 10 x 10 inch wood panel.
And finally some somewhat abstract paintings inspired by the flowers of spring and summer:
Rhododendron abstract, acrylic on 16 x 16 inch wood panel.
I want to show you something: Alex's Leaves, acrylic on 10 x 10 inch panel.
Had to name it that, not a day goes by without a "Mom, I want to show you something...". She was collecting these leaves earlier in the summer from the dogwood tree. They were green to yellow with red in the middle (hope that is not a bad sign for the tree), but I ended up going all red.
White rose abstract, acrylic on 6 x 6 inch panel.
White iris abstract, acrylic on 6 x 8 inch panel.
Spring Flowers, summer storm, acrylic on 12 x 12 inch panel.
That is all of them. You can see I was playing around with some different ideas over the summer. I hope to be back in a couple of days with, you guessed it, more Hobbit illustrations. Have a good rest of your week!
