Evolution of a painting....





Spring is in the air... color is invading my work again.

I am very inspired lately by colorful works, like the ones of my friend Mindy Lacefield, which never fail to put a smile on my face.  She is having an upcoming workshop,  I've already joined as soon as she opened the registration and I invite you to joint her class too here.

Seeing lots of colors in beautiful art like hers never fails to make me inspired. I want to paint and use my hands.  I want to make a mess and enjoy the process. I want to get lost in a creative moment.  Watch me in that personal journey of how a painting evolves and progresses as I go along...

It starts as a collaged canvas... random pieces of paper here and there.


An idea is born.  Color and more paper is added.


Gesso makes it's appeareance.


Pencil and pastels complement the color.


Silhouettes are defined.

Text is added.

 A painting has finished it's evolution.

Time to clean up.
