Here is a 3" mini acrylic canvas painting as a sample for my kupuna art class tomorrow. It's textured white acrylic with drops of ink spread to represent sky, treeline, stream leading to a pond, and a lavafield, all applied with palette knife. The canvas is magnetic so will make great little Christmas presents for my kupuna to give away. If I do a similar one again, I would make the stream meander off the canvas, instead of making the pond.

Thanks, Nolan.  Yes, the next one will have the stream meander right out of the painting.

The more I look at this, the more I like it. It is Arteza gouache on 140lb. watercolor paper, with drops of Dr. PH Martin inks swirled into the gouache with a plastic fork. I never had any appreciation for abstracts until about 6 months ago, now I am hooked.

This new one where you have used a fork is really interesting but for some reason makes me want waffle fries .......seriously, I do like it.   The river one is very interesting as well.  You are getting me to appreciate the abstract a lot more!  Thanks Mea.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Mea, both pieces are good but I love the second one as the colours are brilliant and it entices the viewer to "look into" the painting to see what is hidden. I see fish, birds and star fish too.  Lovely.   Patricia

Thanks, Mary Lou.  I understand what you mean about appreciating abstract more.  I never really "got it" until I started hanging out with abstract artists.  Now, I am really hooked on it.

Thanks, Patricia, yes, this last one is my favorite, too.  It is small and I mounted it on a card yesterday to give as a birthday card and then changed my mind.  One of my abstract artist friends wants me to have it made into a giclee and mounted on canvas to preserve it.

Thanks, Nolan.

My friends are wanting me to get it done as a limited-run giclee for galleries.  Thinking about it.

Thanks Nolan and Mary Lou for your enthusiasm.

One of my artist friends who works in a huge gallery that sells to the Japanese tourists wants me to put my abstracts in her gallery, but I'm not sure that tourists buy anything but Hawaii scenes.

I'd have better luck with my chocolate paintings of Hawaii scenes I think.

Each year I paint a special Christmas card to make into a postcard.  Here's my most likely to be chosen for this year - my tribute to Van Gogh.


Not sure what to add to it - seems like it's missing something.

Thanks, Nolan for the advice - I decorated it.
