A new painting in progress

I finally have a painting that I am happy with in progress.  Its a little hard to see with all of the glare but I think you get the idea. Its actually a larger version in the style of some other paintings I had done in the past but I am happy with the way those turned out so I thought I would try it again, just larger.  I had been experimenting with collage but wasn’t thrilled with the outcome.    But I do love collage, when done right.  Its also been a crazy busy few weeks starting with our power outage at the beginning of July.  I am happy to report that it came on at 1:00 on my birthday!  Yah, I got my birthday wish.  Luckily Eli and I took off for two days and escaped to the beach so I didn’t have to deal with it too much.  Threw out all of our food but my refrigerator has never looked better!  It seems like we have been running here and there and three weeks has gone by in a flash.  Anyway,  I am feeling good about this new painting and will post the finished product when its complete.  Thanks as always for reading my blog.

About PainterPaige

I am an abstract painter living in the Washington, DC suburbs. I have always loved to create. I won my first art award in 3rd grade for my “Friends with Animals” poster. The prize was $3 and my poster was hung at city hall for a month. It was a huge deal back in elementary school. I started my first business, Paige’s Painted Floorcloths, in 2006 where I hand-painted canvas floorcloths and sold them on my website, paigespaintedfloorcloths.com and at local art shows. My site is still up and custom floorcloths are still available although I gave up selling at shows a couple of years ago. This past year, I picked up a paintbrush and fell in love with painting all over again. This time I decided to stick to abstract painting on canvas. I am loving every minute of it!
