Believe in

5x7 oil on panel 

So, in doing these paintings with the writing added, I am finding lots of places to go with this idea.  Right now I am focusing on my own thoughts and how I am feeling about certain things...but I could take it further.  For now, though I will continue on and see how it evolves.

Memory of her

6x6 oil on panel 

So, I am trying something new.  I am writing whatever is on my mind at the time onto my primed board before I start my painting.  This was my first attempt at this to see how it went...I am happy with it on many levels.  One, it helps get the thoughts and emotions out of my head..sort of feels like they are being dealt with as I write them down.  Two, it adds a bit more meaning to my work..there is a story behind the pretty floral.  And three, it provides another element to my painting..texture and interest.  Anyway..we will see where it goes.
