I have been neglecting my little mini-abstracts lately while painting larger canvas for upcoming shows. I just had to get back into these and made an effort this past weekend to paint "small".
I forget how spontaneous and loose these can be. I really enjoy working on them.

"Terraformal" Palette Knife Abstract on Gallery Canvas

20''x16''x1.5'' Palette Knife Acrylic on Gallery Canvas

Wow. In all of my social media posting I seem to have overlooked putting this recent painting up on my blog. It is everywhere else and you may have seen it on my main site or Facebook or another forum....but....if you missed it, here ya go!

I really need to work on this whole blogging thing and post more often, more meaningful content, etc., etc. Too many irons in the fire...and I have to find time to paint in there somewhere! Don't give up just yet. I'm sure some great words of wisdom and occasional fine works of art will pop up here. That is, if I can just spend more time painting and pondering.

Well, I'm getting back in the painting "swing" and trying to build up a good body of work for summer outdoor shows as well as another opportunity which has come up. I'm really looking forward to doing the Crested Butte, CO Arts Festival July 31-Aug 1. It is usually HOT here in Oklahoma at that time and it will be nice to head up to the Rockies where it's cooler and less humid. We plan to swing through Santa Fe and Taos on the trip and soak in some of the views and great art galleries for some inspiration.
