Though uniformly high key nearly to a fault – even the 9 year old grandson said maybe I needed to add some darker colors 😊 – I’m declaring this work done!

I explained to the grandson I totally agreed, but, I want to keep this work as I’m as a starting point of sorts. My idea is to continue trying to merge figure / abstraction / texture in a series of continually deepening contrasts of values.

Besides, I really do like the softer merge I got of texture / flow / color and figure.

Plus I’ve done enough pure abstracts with strong contrasts to know where I want to head with my figure work. A little reminiscent of some small watercolor work I’d done a couple years back –

This time around I’m mixing watercolors, and some acrylic colors, into acrylic mediums, marble dust, acrylic paste, and even a few drops of water – and – with colors! ❤️

We’ll see how this all comes out 😊

Stay well everyone! ☺️




I support passage of The Voting Rights Act 🙏❤️😊

Voting, in our democracy, is the purest form of expression.

Dissenting, affirming, protesting – 
– all flow through the form of the ballot, not, the bullet…

Stay well everyone – for oneself, and for those who need us most..the children….
