Adventures in Artistic Creativity

First of 24 complete.

This barn is about a mile from where I live.
I take my own photos for reference. The cotton is in
full bloom and ready to be harvested.

I finally finished an acrylic painting–first one since my college days in ’95.  Not my best work but considering it’s been so long since I’ve messed with opaque paints, I’ll consider it a success–with a few lessons learned.

I prepared several more panels, all similar size. I’m attempting to get away from traditional painting and move more into abstract works, or at the very least an impressionistic look. I thought it would be easy but I’m really having trouble letting go of my ways and allowing the brush to take over. Maybe the next one will be closer to my goal. Till then, I’d love to hear your comments and or suggestions.

Barn in Cotton Field. 6X8″ acrylic on birch plywood.
This is a side view so you can see that I continue
the painting around the edge.

    I need to take my daughter there to take photos of her. We love going to places like this.
