One of those pieces...

...that comes together very quickly. I had thought about what I wanted to do and did a preliminary sketch. Still I did this in one evening. How many paintings do I have that I've spent hours and hours on without success? Too many, so it is nice to have something some together quickly. This is a continuation of my recent work on portraits.

Untitled as yet. Acrylics and ink on canvas. Perhaps 24 x 18.

Right on, man. You are getting into your own work very openly and creatively. And quickly. I like that. I do that. It brings out the long-ago-kid in me - that found pleasure in just doing it! (grin)

I am exploring the mixed-media art blogs here (literally hundreds and hundreds to go) and yours is one of 3 or 4 I have connected with.

I liked what you did with the photo of your niece below. I've marked down your blogsite and will check out more later.

Thank you.

Thank you for your kind comments. I've taken a look at your 2 blogs. Very nice! I really like the ragweed piece and the new one of your mother. Lovely, beautiful colors with a casual and relaxed attitude.
