Thirty Paintings for 30 Days - Day Fourteen

Pin It
"Stormy Weather"
Acrylic, 20" x 20" on gallery wrap.

It's wonderful to be home although six days in 80 degree weather was heaven. Our trip to watch my youngest son play volleyball was a true vacation. Lots of relaxation, sports, great food and yes ... a few cocktails! I had a very successful photo shoot at my favorite Marina in the world on Waikiki Beach!

I was back at my abstract workshop this morning. A bit jet lagged but I was very excited about this one. I brought home a painting that looked different from this one. The design was there but I really wanted to add a slight "overcoat" or "wash" of another color all over the top. I am so glad I added it because I like it so much more!

Tomorrow I start teaching a three day palette knife workshop. It will be strange to pull out my easels and not be able to paint abstracts! It looks like I will have to paint my abstract painting after the class is over. Oh my, this is going to be a busy week.

Tomorrow is a big day in the challenge. I will give you a hint ... it has to do something with being halfway done!

Check out my 2015 workshop schedule! I am coming to Cape Cod, Atlanta, Charlotte and Richmond in 2015! Plus you can paint and stay with me in Ventura, CA at the beach house!
