Going through some stranger places than usual

 Of late I am tired of painting what are almost normal landscapes and colour field painting and turning to very abstract work. Here are a few that are up on ArtPal set to "print on demand". 

"8 Million Ways to Say Hello"

"String Theory"

"Running Across the Desert, Blind"

"Ascending to a Place of Wonder"

Long Slow Painting

I started this one a couple of weeks ago and have been visiting it as the smoke is diminishing. Last night I came close and today I finished.

Why I don't paint from photos

 I just had an amazing revelation: I seldom paint from photos or plein air, I want to paint places that only exist in my mind and are only accessible through my paintings.

Half hour painting

 I really enjoy painting small and fast work to clear my head. I don't do it often but last night I was stuck on a large abstract landscape and did this one with the paints I had mixed to work on this 60x30 piece.

Back to a Little Printmaking

Whitacre Printmakers is doing a print exchange and this year I thought I would take part.
I have been painting a LOT of late and switching mindsets

is a bit difficult but I love this image so that makes it a bit more pleasant.
We took a trip down to Wildlife Safari last week and this guy almost stuck his head in the window. 
This is a @Solarplate print done with Charbonnel Auga Wash ink.
