on my easel this week

acrylic and ink

i am not sure where it is going 

but that is not an unusual state for me.

i will wait and come back to see whether

the next round of painting will uncover more.

wondering if you are more deliberate in your approach to a painting?

wishing you a lovely long holiday weekend. 

we in southern california are experiencing a very warm

 and humid (for the west coast) week.  perfect for outdoor dining, candles

twinkling white lights well into the night.


i join eva and kristen at ppf with other artists 
who show their art.  won't you visit?


  1. I am so interested in how this is going to turn out,Irene. I know you will get there in the end. A warm evening of outdoor dining, candles and twinkling lights sounds very idyllic. It is dull and raining here today. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Hi Irene. We are very hot and humid here in NorCal love what you are working on right now. I see 3D effects. Have a great weekend.

  3. Irene, your painting is lovely with lots of motion. I am eager to see how you progress on it, although I can see it as finished already. Beautiful sky view.

  4. LOVE your painting, and the photos is fantastic! Have a great weekend, Irene! Hugs, Valerie

  5. Love what's on your easel...I see a pregnant woman in all that ink...beautiful. Can't wait to see what you come up with! Happy holiday to you! Enjoy the last bit of summer!

    Hugs Giggles

  6. I'd love to see how you finish this Irene. I already see a figure of a man lifting up the figure of a woman-perhaps his love? Lovely sunset. Enjoy!

  7. The painting is coming on well, could it be that it is finished? Love the sky photo.

  8. I love the movement in this painting! Wonderful, neutral ebb and flow throughout! Can't wait to see where you take this :)

  9. Oh what fun, I look forward to seeing the outcome of this work. Blessings, Janet PPF

  10. This is just stunning and I can't wait to see what it becomes. I work in a more exploratory fashion in the collages I do for myself, and also in my sketchbooks, but am relatively focused on other work... But it is more that it is informed by the exploring I have done earlier if you know what I mean... Have. A great long weekend

  11. It's good at times not to know where it's heading :)
    Gorgeous pic!
