Been over a month since I put anything up. These are some of what I have done lately. Been trying to so some abstract work and finding that it is harder to do than painting in a more realistic way. Most of what I start painting, even if I just slop paint, suggest a scene and I end up painting a landscape or something that is clearly reconizable and not what I would call a non-object abstract. Not having an art education, maybe I don't know what I'm talking about so I'll just put up what I do and let anyone who looks at them decide for themselves. Recently (last week) decided to paint a little series of Lighthouses. These are what I have come up with in the last couple of days. I have a few more I want to do and will put them up when they are done.
I find it hard to put a commentary with each post I put here so I think that from now on, unless I have something specific to say, I'll just post my little paintings as I do them without any comments.
I think that I have mentioned this before but almost all of my work is miniature, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and done in oil paint on a plastic panel. If I do something different I'll post a commentary on it when I post the painting.

I think that I may get back into digital painting again. Especially for abstract type of work. I was playing around with TwistedBrush (art software for the computer) yesterday and was intrigued by some of the brushes in it and with some of the effects one could do with them. Something to play with. We'll see

Enough of that, here is my post for today. This is different in that I am going to try to do some small abstract type work. One is more of a seascape done in a sort of abstract sort of way and the other is totally a non-object piece. Both are 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size.
