So happy you are my first! :D

So far I have 2 sets of these, the other set is in different colors. I am working on the 3rd set this weekend. They are a little putzy to do but I thought they would go over well for Christmas shoppers.

I responded to you on my previous painting - the red abstract - hopefully you saw it?

Thank you so much Joyce :) I wish the prices would come down on them - but then again, if they did they would probably become too commonplace ;)

So I was looking at my wall and there is an angel picture I put in my gallery, in the background there are words, (barely readable ) But they say happiness, peace, love, and hope. One more thing to add to our list of things in common! I was telling my friend about you tonight and he could not believe how many things there were, he thought I was making it all up! LOL Someday! We will have to get together and play art! I told him she doesn't live too close. If you did that would be wonderful! Have a wonderful night! "ART SISTER!"

Too much! Which one is it? I am working on the third set of these and am most excited about the third. Klimt is my all time favorite artist and this set is inspired by him. So far, so good.

Since I have so much family in MA, I know we shall meet. And with my daughter going to school so close to Boston, i will be there. It really is uncanny how many similarities there are between us. One thing I have come to know for sure is that people are brought into our lives for a reason. No such thing as coincidence. It all serves a purpose. I will email you before the weekend is out!

Totally true!! It is the one with the butterfly in front of it. It is done in colored pencil. It's a baby angel. Someday we will meet. I was also wondering if you ever got my email? Sorry for spilling all that on you. For now I am just enjoying the time to paint. Now I just have to figure out how to sell them!!

This piece and your other work show such strong design and purpose. I love the use of colour in these four and how you have captured four very different elements with simple designs. This take s a lot of thought.

I have always been fascinated with color and the effect colors have on each other as well as how color could make me feel. I am a huge fan of Gustav Klimt and find myself especially drawn to his pairing of two and three-dimensional elements.

As early as I can remember, art was my thing. After the loss of a child, I lost my desire to sketch or paint. I avoided quiet...

Honest opinion please. Should this go in the file 13, be burned as my daughter suggested, or be hung up?
Yeee...I think ,-it's a good abstract piece already!If you wish ,-you can hung it or add some more details,shapes,scratches etc...but it's good,unusual... view answer
