Door Paintings

This is the second of two cupboard door paintings I have done for the Door Show at Fraker/Scott Gallery in August. The color in the first image is wrong on the inner border. It is not that yellow. I posted a separate image of the plaster tiles so that you can see them more clearly.
You should come see this show as a number of the artists are painting on full size doors. I didn't think all my new parts were up to the challenge, so went with cupboard doors from my remodeled kitchen.

A Couple More Abstract Landscapes

Today is the end of week six since my knee replacement, and I am doing well though still recuperating. Don and I have been discussing whether or not it makes sense for me to have the second knee surgery in October, since it would be my fourth surgery in 13 months. I think I may need to take some time off before having the next one! Luckily I was at least inspired to paint after this most recent one.

I continue to paint abstract landscapes, some more abstract than others. The above are a couple of the most recent pieces I finished.

Something Different

Every once in awhile I paint something unlike anything else I have done. This is it for this year.

Abstract Landscapes Continued

Well, the abstract landscape idea has stuck with me, so I am posting a couple of the newest ones. I have also been working on three pieces that I am painting on old cabinet doors left from our kitchen remodel. They are something I wanted to do for the Door themed show at Fraker/Scott Gallery that is coming up soon. I only have one done and I have posted it here for you to see. At one point I dragged out my old encaustics, which I have not used for a couple years, and used wax on the door. It did not go well, however, and I had to remove all of it. Now that was a mess, but I am used to cleaning up messes.
