Portland waterworks

This painting is 8 x 16 Oil on Panel. I went back through some of my photos I took a couple years ago to Portland to visit dear friends. This was a water play area. I took out some figures and added some in as I tried to balance the painting.

Abstract Pro

Acrylic on Watercolor paper. 11 x 14. This is another one of my abstract paintings. I find it interesting that I spend so many hours of painting and practicing my skill at realism oil painting and impressionism. However, this happens to be one of my husband's favorites. It certainly didn't take the amount of time to paint. However, I guess the accumulation of the learning of composition and design ultimately bring me to the point where I have the ability to paint simple abstracts. Anyway, the abstracts are a fun diversion from the complexity of my normal routine.
