This is another daily painting that I did of two tangerines.  It was a lot of fun to do and how quick it came out too.  I can not wait to take better pics of this with a better camera, hopefully you can somewhat make out the true colors.  I will be traveling for a bit I am gonna try to put new works while I travel, but not guaranteeing anything.  I am running a marathon this Sunday in Berlin, Germany.  So I am really excited about that and prepping hard for it!  Till then, take care!

"Morning Midst"

This is another of my daily paintings that I am starting to do more and more.  They are so much fun to do.  Its great practice in so many ways.  I have also done another little video to go along with it (you can view the video on the sidebar of the blog).  I am pushing myself to do more and more of daily paintings, I think its a great thing to do, and one can learn so much of it.  This painting was also done here in Zug, Switzerland.  Its a pretty muted palette but at the same time there are many colors that are being harmonized, its a pretty tricky painting to execute but a lot of fun to do and learning.  The picture does not show to much of the colors that are in the right of the foreground, kind of looks all dark with little subtleties but it has light greenish blues and some yellows too.  Enjoy!!!

Beyond the Hills

This painting was a lot of fun to do, first I made a little video to go with it (you can view the video on the side bar of this blog) Which was fun to do never done that before. The scenary is just beautiful here in Switzerland, the mountains and the clouds have so much character too them. The colors here are also so vibrant. I tried keeping this painting looser than what I usually do, keeping the juicy gesture strokes that I usually blend away (bad habit).  I plan to take a better pic when I get back home... Enjoy!!!
