Spooky... Frog?

 I was aiming for a haunted building, but fluid acrylics are interesting in that they keep moving after you are done and want them to just look like what you did. Any subtle kant to the surface you are working on and all things change. This ended up looking a bit like a spooky frog, rather than an abstract of a spooky building, which is what I was going for. Interesting that it came away strange regardless.

Grand Tetons Skyline At Night

I got back over to the mountain west again this year, in late summer. It was gorgeous. This is another fluid acrylics painting, this time on cardboard. This is the skyline of the Grand Tetons late in the evening. 

Really enjoying this style of painting, it reminds me more of watercolor in how the pain behaves.

Summer Dahlias, Fluid Art

This isn't done, but it's been fun to play with. There are moments of this that are really lovely, and other moments I may need to play with more.  But it's a fun, gloopy project I highly recommend. I was inspired by golden pair fluid, which I highly recommend people watch and play with.

It's just abstract and playful. 

The sheen and gold was really hard to photograph. This photo is straight in the sun. It didn't seem to turn out as well as the one (above) shot at an angle.

Not for Me Part 2

 Going through some really emotional stuff and trying to paint through it. Turns out despair is pretty common in our modern society, but I can't recommend it to anyone.

Olympic Mountains

 I live near such a special place; Washington is truly beautiful.

Green flowers.

Joyful lake.
