This is my new painting, "Melting". It is a bit scary and I would rather not do scary art. But I really liked my sketch and I wanted to see if I could translate it into paint. I will have a October show at The Arts Center In Orange and I hope to have my work revolve around the them of "evolving" or "transitioning". Those themes have been in mind when I sketch since last fall. The Arts Center In Orange is a neat place, I am looking forward to teaching a "Paint without Brushes" camp there in August and becoming more involved.

This is my other Spring painting I call "Spring Descending Into the Forest". This method of working is more in line with how I want to paint.
The second image is a photo I took of my new favorite flowers, peonies. They grow bigger and bigger without falling apart. I love staring into their centers, the yellow seems to make them glow from within. I also love the subtle color changes.
