Hot off the easel

Here are a few new paintings, the 2nd and 3rd are to be entered into a local juried show.  My fingers are crossed.

The next challenge is coming up with some new compositions with a little more depth and story.  I'd like to enter the Art Renewal Centers annual Salon for 2012 so I need to design a little more sophisticated composition. 

The last two photos are from my garden, we had a glorious sunny day!

Here's what's on the easel at the moment.  I'm having so much fun working with bright colors.  Thinking SPRING!!!

The goal these days is to push past good enough and really work towards amazing.  Which means slowing down a bit more and really checking that everything is thought through, ie color relationships, edges, values, composition and story.
