Abstract Still Life II

This abstract was painted right after the one posted below.  I think I was in the same frame of mind and had our own little conversation going.

Abstract Still Life I

I've been playing with my watercolor abstracts again.  I've just completed 2 "still life" paintings (16x20) and this is the first of the two.  This one incorporates watercolor, oil pastel and watercolor pencils.  I really enjoy painting this type of work.  I paint and the painting talks back to me.  It's sort of like a conversation in color.

Southern Spain

This is my last little painting of Spain (5x7).  It's just another scene we walked by while on a stroll one day in Mijas.  It was meant to capture their love for colorful potted and blooming plants.  This town was extremely clean.  It looked like Mr. Clean had just visited right before we got there.  Loved that place.

Decorated Donkey - Mijas, Spain

I'm still posting my recent travel paintings.  This sweet face was one of the donkeys that were lined up and ready to take tourists on  little rides around town.  They were so sweet and just loved having their noses petted.  We couldn't resist them but we sure smelled bad for the rest of the afternoon!
