The dancers are spinning around. It is a tribal ritual.

Day 28 of  Leslie Saeta’s 30 in 30. Soon my abstracts will need to take a back seat to some more complex paintings I am working on.

I would love to get your feedback on my foray into the abstract.

Maeshowe

Maes H

Maeshowe  SOLD

Mixed Media  6″ x 6″

Maeshowe is a neolithic chamber cairn on the Mainland, Orkney, Scotland. We were fortunate enough to see many neolithic chambers while touring the Orkneys but we missed visiting one of my favorite distilleries, Highland Park, while in Kirkland.

The Maeshowe type of cairn is limited to Mainland, Orkney. On mid winters day the sun shines into it and can be seen via webcam here.  You can also check out  a beautiful photo of Maeshowe winter solstice  light here.  There is so much to see in the Orkneys~Skara Brae, the Ring of Brodgar, the Tomb of the Eagles,  the Standing Stones of Stenness,  and enormous stone circles as well as bronze age houses.

If you only click on one image, click on Tomb of the Eagles and you will see where my memory has taken me with this painting.

The title feels fitting for this piece. I never thought I would love making abstract paintings as much as I do.

Poppies  SOLD

Mixed Media  6″ x 6″

Reminded of how much I love to look out at fields of poppies while traveling by train in Europe.

The gold in this painting isn’t picked up in the photograph but gives the painting a luminescent quality.

Today is day 17 of  Leslie Saeta’s 30 in 30 painting challenge. I have gotten off track due to illness but hope to try some more abstracts. I have found I have a big learning curve ahead of me. I wish I could be meandering the Modern Museum as I welcome the inspiration.

Still working on my curious creature paintings and I hope to have some finished soon.

Egg Case

Egg Case  $25

6″ x 6″ Watercolor

I have been ill with bronchitis and laryngitis and haven’t been able to paint. I did this small work of a sponge and seaweed that I found after a recent storm.

The sponge had egg cases attached to it. They had already frozen and started to become concave, but it was interesting to see how life goes on even in the cold under waters of the Atlantic in New England.

Here is a photo where you can see the egg cases.IMG_9508
