Ok first off, I did end up getting a stupid freaking head/chest cold so I’m feeling bit under the weather today.
However, that didn’t stop me from painting the second piece in my unnamed triangular series.
This second piece is just slightly larger than the first one, measuring about (11.8″ x 0.6”) and again it’s acrylic on canvas. Continue reading “Unnamed two ~ the sequel”
Last night I finished one of the triangle canvas’.
I find whenever I finish a piece I just want to toss it in a corner for a few days until we grow on each other and as per the norm such is the case with this one.
I’ve yet to title it, or decide whether or not its going to be number 1 in a series of triangle paintings. Continue reading “Un-named”
Today was a breezy fall day. . . .
I finished teaching at one of the many elementary schools that I work at.
Enthusiastically waved goodbye to happy little Japanese children and walked towards my car when “it” happened.
The little hill that my car was parked on has trees along both sides and a gorgeous view of the Japanese countryside.
I decided to take a moment and really soak in the beauty of God’s handiwork.
So, I paused on the hill, underneath nice shady trees to admire the golden rice fields and to feel the sun on my face.
Suddenly, a strong gust of fall air caused the trees to sway in the breeze and to release from the grip of their branches “tennis sized balls of spiky terror”.(see note 1) Continue reading ““God’s art, My photos” (or) “Spiky Terror from above””
I was just browsing through the pictures on my laptop and came across a few old paintings. So, I thought I’d dig them out of the proverbial electronic attic and post them again. All the originals are currently sitting back in Canada most likely collecting dust…*sigh*. So enjoy (or don’t) and feel free to comment. (Oh, and those of you who can’t handle the naked abstract may want to stay clear, *shrugs* suit yourself)
Oh and one more thing, I’ll apologize now for the crappy shots. I took them with an old cheap digital camera so their either glarey from the flash or a bit blurry. I’d take better ones (since we have a kick butt camera now) but like I said, the paintings are sitting in Canada and I’m currently in Japan.
