hot wax, loose arm, my mountain, and color PLAY

 

 

 

 
Posted by Picasa

SPRINGING into action...
it's not all walks and no play.
loosening the spirit and the arm
with color for my continued repeated
renderings of MY mountain...


{the last one, my other obsession, arches..
more to come.
the 2 top photos are oil sticks on board, 5"x12"
and a couple layers of beeswax}

  5. I have to echo the previous comments of "dreamy". That is what I immediately thought when looking at these beautiful works!

  9. Wonderful hues and nuances here, Neva! Reminds me of Georgia O'Keefe's works -- keep on going -- unless your arm wearies -- Helen Frankenthaler once said -- "I felt the painting in my arms" -- !!!
