Feeling Floral Today

It must be the Spring sunshine but I am feeling floral today.  Here is today's work in progress....

Acrylic and Metal Leaf on Canvas 30"x30"

I am really liking the looseness of this painting - hope I don't lose it!

Abstract Expressionism - A few small paintings

Most of my paintings start out as abstract expressionist works but rarely remain that way because I let my brain become too involved and I often lose the freshness, spontaneity and honesty of the original marks.  I decided to make a commitment to stopping at a certain stage and just letting them be.  I love to create large works but I am running out of space so I created some smaller paintings to explore the process further.  I am seriously in a painting frenzy right now and making the most of it .... here are a few of the paintings.

Right, I am off to my studio and I may not surface for some time!

Recent commissions on their way to their new home.

These two paintings were created as a commission to hang side by side.  They are large paintings (48"x36" each) and I think they will make quite a statement.  I love creating large paintings but find it a little difficult at the moment as my space is too small - hopefully my new studio will be ready soon and I can venture into even larger paintings.
