The stone series I've been working on is informing these shell paintings.

I'm really interested not just in your choice of colour Don but the way you are applying paint. Sometimes letting a brush stroke lie there, sometimes blending it and again seeming to "brush it away". All I know is the paintings work for me. They are such a personal interpretation of the subject.

Sheila, if there were such a thing, I might be arrested on charges of "paint abuse." I glop, slap, scrape, scrub, tickle, spatter, wipe...anything to try to make the paint surprise me--come up with something I haven't seen before. It's exciting and often frustrating, but I'm "hooked."

Thanks for your thoughtful comments.

Wow Don, these are so lovely! You've been pretty busy. I just finished a 3 day workshop on landscape painting.....I was STRETCHED lol Using the acrylics sure worked me over and the instructor was wonderful. She did several demos a day for us.
