Layered Landscape Series: The Ocean

I mentioned a new series in one of my posts last week and this the first painting in the series.

I painted this card for my brother, David, and it reminded me of a landscape even though that was not my original intent. I got to thinking that it may be interesting to paint a series of landscapes using the same technique--especially since one of my goals is to simplify my paintings. I wanted to create something very simple and yet still identifiable. Something that still evokes a thought, feeling or memory without much detail. This is the first painting in the series:

The paper is 9x12 inches. I painted them all with a really wide border. The painting itself is 5.25x8 inches.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
