Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day Twenty-five

Pin It
"Crashing Waves"
Acrylic, 36" x 36" on 1 1/2" gallery wrap.

This painting is truly a labor of love. It took me three full days to paint and it is very heavy due to the many layers of paint. As you know these colors are my favorite so I really enjoyed the process. Even if it did take me forever!

I will share with you a little secret. While I have been painting my abstract paintings this month I have been "binge watching" all of the episodes of The West Wing. (Actually I think I have been listening more than watching.) The West Wing has always been my favorite show but I haven't watched the show in almost ten years. I was a political science major in college and always loved the oval office subject matter. I must say the show is even better the second time around! Aaron Sorkin is a genius. I am on season IV and I do not want it to end!

So, have you ever "binge watched" a show on NetFlicks before?

I have a workshop coming up in Atlanta in March. Although we won't be painting abstracts we will be painting very loosely with a palette knife. I hope you will consider joining me! The dates are March 16 - 18, 2015. Click here for more information.

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! Click here for more information! I am offering Online Studio painting classes every month! Join me each month as we paint boats, roosters, glass, beach scenes, umbrellas, etc. with a palette knife!
