Like a Blank Canvas

Why is it that people use the metaphor of a blank canvas as a thing filled with hope? I look at it as a sign of work, work, work. I just remembered last night that the deadline to submit pieces to the Holiday art show for Evergreen Gallery had snuck up on me and now look at the pieces I need to finish by the end of the day.

One For Me

I finally got around to painting something for my family room. I had to do some paintings for a gallery stroll that Paisley Pomegranate was being a part of, and it was a perfect excuse for me to paint this for myself. If I hadn't had that deadline I would have never gotten around to doing it. I still haven't painted a new painting for my living room since I gave away the piece that was hanging there to a friend of mine more than six months ago.

Awash in Blue

As the title to these paintings suggest, I really have been awash in blue lately. Ever since I completed the blue commission a few weeks ago I've been a little addicted to these colors. I just sent a few of these pieces off to Monsoon Gallery in Pennsylvania. I hope someone else shares my interest in these blues.
