12-12-17 "sea change"
12-12-17 “sea change”

8×8″ acrylic

This is a combination of palette knife lines and block printing. It still looks a little spare to me, like it needs something more. But I’m trying to keep it simple this time.

12-11-17 “leading the way”

8×6″ acrylic on paper

Not much to say about it. This has been done for awhile (or as done as it will get), but I’m just finally posting the photo. Busy times! Will I do better in 2018? My intention says yes. My reality says maybe!

11-10-17 “solstice”

8×6″ acrylic on paper

I know, it’s not the solstice and I should wait to post this until then. But this is what I worked on this week (in addition to a few other things, but this is done, I think), so it’s this week’s not-so-daily jane. This started out much rougher, sketchier. But then my organizer-brain took over and decided it needed to be tidier. *sigh* I still don’t know when to stop, sometimes. But here it is (for now).

10-13-17 “buffalo stand”

3.5×2.5″ acrylic, marker on artist’s trading card

A little leftover scrape, a little marker doodling. I see a bull or a bison (or a bison bull?) standing, but maybe that’s just my reaction to the political talk of the day.

10-6-17 "waltzes not walls"
10-6-17 “waltzes not walls”

8″x8″ acrylic on paper

The title of this painting is from one of the hashtags for an arts-based celebration (Minuet MANY Unity Celebration) scheduled for tomorrow in opposition to the Iowa Minutemen (militia) meeting here this weekend. Does the painting have anything to do with it? Not really, but it’s on my mind, so it’s what came to me as I was considering a title. Hoping for the rain to stop so the youth orchestra can play on the capitol grounds! #MinuetsNotMilitias #WaltzesNotWalls
