A Perfect Day 
9”x 12” oil on canvas
starting bid:  $75

The Virtual Paintout - an art challenge using Google Street View - has gone to Cambodia this month. I toured around villages, jungles, farms and cities looking for the best place to paint. I happened upon this lonely road on a stunningly beautiful day. It was so perfect, just as it is, that all I had to do was capture it. That was the challenge. You can see it for yourself by clicking here.

This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas. It can be framed, but you could hang it up, just as it is.

Color Therapy
9” x 12”  acrylic on canvas

This little painting was started in desperation but finished in whimsy. Desperation because of one thing and another - I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted, I was forced to use acrylics (which I sometimes like and sometimes don’t), and more etceteras than you can shake a stick at. But then it began to come around to something I liked and had fun with, something I actually looked forward to painting and trying new ideas out on. 

Sooooo - I honestly don’t know what to call it... “Untitled #...” beh, ,“Ch-ch-changes”??? No, that’s just plagiarism. “The Journey”??? Oh, please. “Reincarnations”? “Incarnations” (weird!)  ….well, it was a little of all those things, but it was also a kind of therapy. Maybe "Color Therapy” ??   Yep, we’ll go with that!  (And move on to the next one.)

The paint covers all sides of the canvas. It can be framed, but you could hang it up just as it is; it would look good that way, too.
