Turtles Stampeding Through Peanut Butter
Yesterday, I ran (that is a synonym for slog) the Air Force Half Marathon at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH. It was, they said, the hottest it's ever been for their race. There wasn't much to be done except keep moving slowly and watch the fields. So, spotted, and reinterpreted (and the world starts to take on a special colorful glow at a certain point during a long run on a hot day) a field oak.
Watercolors: Daniel Smith: Quin gold, phthalo blue rs, and quin violet.

If you can't tell what changed recently--I used more crayon to intensify some of the colors and added a movement or line to connect some of the shapes.
If you're wondering, Tippy Canoe comes from Tippecanoe, which was a battle. Logically, I use it to more literally like a canoe that is about to tip over.

Started as a tree landscape, went to a pure abstract, and then came back to abstract landscape.
Best part? It's signed, matted, photographed, and I'm about to list it on Etsy. That's usually my energy barrier. It's hard to sell art if you don't have any art online to sell. Instead, there's a stockpile in my basement

Come to The Edge 1-3
You can see the original paint I laid down on Instagram, here. I like the colors.
The title is from a quote by Guillaume Apollinaire:
Come to the edge, he said. They said: We are afraid. Come to the edge, he said. They came. He pushed them and they flew.Paint--nickel azo yellow, carbazole violet, cobalt teal, an indanthrone blue
Paper--300 lb hot press Fabriano.

Waiting for three small abstracts to dry so I can put on a crayon overlay. #watercolor #abstract #art
Where Orange Meets Blue
It's satisfying to have a little piece that starts out amorphous pull together in a way that's pleasing to me. Like when a key works on a lock.
