December Paintings

Japan Skies, Early March 2011
3" x3"
acrylic on wood

This is from a photograph taken in Tanabe. One of my fondest memories is how often I would look to the clouds and skies and think of the clouds and skies above my loved ones. Now, back in the States, I look to the skies and think of our loved ones in Japan and how their skies might look. This is in memory of Japan.

Three Pillows
3" x 3"
acrylic on wood

This painting was from a still life I set up in our room. For days, I would rearrange the pillows from our bed and side chair and draw. I found that when they were stacked or leaning, they became creature like and thus, I would give them personalities.
(more of these studies in paint to come)
