Think About the things................

" Think About the things that bring you joy, then make a point of connecting with as many of them as possible, as often as possible." I need to do this a lot more.

This painting measures only 5x7 on stretched gallery wrapped canvas and needs no framing. The piano is my favorite instrument maybe because one of my older sisters was quite a pianist. I grew up listening to her practice for years. No matter what I was doing homework, talking on the phone you could hear the classical notes start and stop in the background. I often include pianos in my paintings. I love the lines of a baby grand.

11x14 Abstract Interior

I've been feeling a little stressed with the holiday's coming and with that my painting always seems to go in a more abstract direction. I find it very relaxing and calming to paint with out restrictions or boundaries. The work becomes more about surface texture and color mixing.
This piece is done on stretched canvas that has been gallery wrapped , sides painted so no frame is needed.
It's available for sale in my Etsy shop.
