Woman Smiling (Acrylic)

I painted this shortly after an unexpected and extended stay of exactly 40 days in Copenhagen in January through February of 2001. Personally, it’s my favorite, but when a friend saw it recently, she saw something entirely different from what I saw. I suppose that’s why it’s called Art. It’s title is based on what she saw.

“Dark Lines” Watercolor

It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to pick-up my brush and begin painting again. When this happens, I am often my harshest critic. And, as always, I begin with – not an idea – but with color. And then, I search for things within the color – What is there? Anything? And I take it from there. Not sure where I’m going yet with this one. Maybe somewhere. Maybe nowhere.
