mmmmmmmm paint...

I love to paint. Its my true passion, and very hard for me to show to people (I realize this will make it really difficult to succeed as a painter), the few times I have had shows have turned into disasters...and I had an emotional shut down with painting for awhile. Well I have been painting again recently and have bought the supplies to put together a large collection of large pieces this summer...although first I have a place to paint canvases this large...but I have some leads...although then I have to store them...

I actually have one of my largest paintings stapled to the wall of my bedroom...I just ripped it off the stretches and grabbed the staple gun. I got the idea from an older painter that lives near me and has had great success with his heart... I figure if he can do it with his much more "valuable" pieces, then so can I! I gave my mom my largest painting ever or Mother's Day this year, as she has always loved it and had her eye on it for years...well I suggested that she too just rip it off the stretchers and attach it right to the wall, stud finder issue resolved! *Hi Mom!*

So back on track here...I am now working on a new series, well rather revisiting one I started last year and so far they are pretty small...but soon they will grow! Anyhow...I discovered yesterday my new favorite paint color...ooooh so exciting I know, but this year I have developed a rather intense attraction to two particular paints...expect them to pop up often...

Here they are in all their glory (image they are made of pigment and not light...
