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.
