Both images are acrylic paintings, my medium of choice. And both pieces are from my photographs. My attempt is to use the photographs as a base but allow myself to use artistic license to alter details as seems appropriate. I feel like each new canvas and fresh paints is like a new puzzle to challenge my brain. Fun! And always learning. My first choice of inspiration would be live, plein aire painting; but right now my photographs are a good inspiration. Critiques are always welcome!
Concrete and dirt are two equal loves of mine. The engergies of concrete in the city are so lively and allow great people watching. Being next to the soil and nature are soul renewing. Both are needed in this life.
