works in progress

I'm painting over a daylily painting I did earlier this summer...just didn't like it.
I've moved away from painting the vessel series toward hand-held paper fans as
a subject.

38" x 40"  acrylic on canvas    These fish tank paintings have been the follow-up to the series this past year of vessel paintings.  The deep sea diver has been in our fish tanks over 50 years!  Gus made the small ceramic jug in the bottom.  The rock(without the hole) is from upstate New York.

Vessel- Oriental Poppies

acrylic on canvas  38" x 40"
This shows how I changed an old painting into one I like better.  First it was finished as "Dark Yellow Vessel".   The yellows bothered me eventually so it became "Grasses Vessel".    Still not pleased it finally became poppies...that I like.  Part of me wishes I'd just started a new canvas though.
