Days End. 9x12 acrylic on canvas.

Days End. 9x12 acrylic on canvas.   The patterns of blue, black and gold really struck me as a pleasing combination.  I believe it all comes down to staying awake to the possibilities.

River Walk. 8x10 acrylic on canvas.

Posting late this evening.  This was from a walk along the bikepath by the river a few weeks ago.  Loved the interplay of light on the water.

Meeting House. 11x14 acrylic on canvas.

Painted this earlier this year in South Carolina.  No matter where you are, subjects are everywhere, but you must be open to finding them.

Downtown Church. 12x14 acrylic on canvas.

I have a lot of catching up to do.  It's been almost a year since I ladt posted here!  Many apologies!  I will be posting every day now for the next several months to get up back up to date.   Much of the problem was computer issues and downright busyness!  Looking forward to getting back to blogging on a daily basis!

This painting is a street in downtown Rock Island, Illinois.  I love church steeples!
