Started two new yellow and red paintings a while ago, but I really fell behind on posting any pics of them. Here are two pics from early on in the process...

I also started a series of three paintings that have a style similar to my painting 'Red Balloons'

I started this new series of yellow boxes back in July. These canvases are really cool because they are 2.5 inches deep so they really stand out.

Since I'm just getting around to posting these pics now I actually have a update on these paintings below...

Yellow boxes in July...

Yellow boxes in August....

I think you can see the orange highlights I started to add in this pic

The orange series of 4 is complete! Yea!
I think I missed a few updates on the final layers, but here are the completed paintings...

Ok, so I have been a little lax in posting updates lately. All I can say is that I have been really focused on completing a lot of paintings in preparation for two art shows I am participating in this month. The first one is tomorrow--here are the details:

I'm not really sure where this other muted palette painting is going, but I'm having fun with it...

Another orange series of 4 update. Added some new red and orange to balance the shadows out a bit.

I'm still working on the muted palette paintings. The skyline is really starting to come through on this one...

Orange series of 4 update...
Added some additional depth to the shadowy areas. This photo doesn't really show it very well. Sorry about that. If you squint you can kind of see what I am talking about.

All of the yellow series of 6 painting are finished! I'll be posting them on Etsy later today. I'm really pleased with how they all turned out.

I think the Orange series of four is getting close. Time to start having fun with the final layers...

p.s. what do you think of my white place mats? I took these pics on my table.

Yellow series of 6 is almost done. Just want to add a few final touches after this layer dries...

WOW! I've only posted two of the 8x8 24th Street Station series paintings and one has already sold :) I'll be posting the other two on Etsy today, and I'm working on finishing the larger 18 x 18 piece as well.

I've also been working on the yellow series of four and the orange series of six, but I haven't gotten organized enough to take photos of the new layers yet. I will try to get to that this weekend so the progress will be forever documented here on my most fabulous blog.

The pic above is one the last two 24th Street Station 8x8's that I'll be listing on Etsy today.

Thanks so much for all of your support!

Wow! I have really been neglecting my posts. Now that the holidays are over I will try to get back on top of things.

Even though I haven't posted, I have still been busy painting! I actually finished the four 8x8 squares inspired by 24th Street Station that I started back in August.

I also finished the big orange square 36" x 36" painting. I will try to get photos up here soon. I also need to get them posted into my Etsy store. It's going to be a busy couple of weeks!

Here is a sneek peak at one of the finished 24th Street Station paintings. All four of these are the same size 8"x 8"x1.5" deep.
