Stacked with Lime

This is my entry for the Daily Paintworks challenge. It's challenging just to create one of these stacks; mine kept toppling before I finally got one that worked! I used the lime wedge to tie the greens together.

I've been painting madly. I have completed 3 pieces based on my Spain/Portugal trip and then another of an old truck I photographed in Bisbee, AZ. I also had a large painting that I completed about 5 years ago when I was a "worse" artist and didn't apply enough paint to make it interesting. I liked the composition though, so I used it as an under painting and applied tons more paint. well, maybe not tons. Kind of like people who apply "real" paint to their giclees? Anyway, I think it's a much better painting now.


  1. Hi---I love this painting. I know just what you mean about missing the comments. What is it? Weird, I think, but the missing must have to do with the way communication is going. I'm sure if many individuals saw your work, they would all comment favorably. And, now we have gone and exposed ourselves and our work and our hearts to the great unknown---and miss something when they do not weigh in.
    At any rate, I'm still very interested in what you are doing. The entire blog looks great. In the balanced stack, I particularly like the clear glass. You pulled it off quite nicely!
