'Pressure Point'

I enjoyed doing yesterday's piece so much, I decided to go back into the studio today and do a companion piece. This painting contains the same elements as yesterday with the exception that I started straight in with acrylic so the watercolor media isn't in the mix.

'Vanishing Point'

This is an abstract I started on yesterday with my Wednesday painting group 'Women on Paper'. It was too cold to paint outdoors so we got together at The Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art. Most everyone worked on an abstract of some sort. I was pleased enough with the start so I decided to take it into the studio today to finish it up. I started the piece working in watercolor & watercolor pencils....then today I went back into it with acrylic paint, some collage and some it's mixed media for sure!

"Local Brevities" - which direction?

Having paper, paint and newspaper left over from the painting I did for the Aiken Retrospective, I decided to do a smaller piece using the same concept....a 'companion piece' so to speak. There was a column in the 1921 Aiken Journal and Review which was entitled "Local Brevities" contained tidbits of news about the towns people such as engagements, honors and awards, etc...
Here's my question to anyone who reads this blog......Horizontal or Vertical?
