small Drawing of Raven in black & white

Here is a small drawing of a raven, that I created using pens on paper.
It measures approximately 4 x 4.75 inches. My drawing was inspired by Odilon Redon's image of a raven.

Redon's raven has been a source of inspiration for several of my creations. :)
Thanks for looking at my drawing!

small painting of Windswept Trees

Here are 2 windswept trees....
The sky is cloudy and the wind blows hard and sways the branches of these trees as well as the grass that grows beside them.

Small Painting of three trees - Magenta rules!

This is a very small painting measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I began this painting, creating magenta clouds....
There are 3 trees here, in the colors of purple, magenta and black. And, there is an ovoid shape within the black tree. I have entitled this painting, "The Ovoid in the Tree."

small painting of Black and Gray trees

I challenged myself to create a painting only using the colors of black and white. And, so I created this small painting that is a rendition of 2 gray trees and one black tree, that is in the foreground.

Small Landscape Painting - 1/2013

Her is my new small painting (in gouache on paper) that measures 3 x 5 inches!
It is certainly small in size. I very often work on a small scale.
This piece was time consuming to create, regardless of its size. There were certain details that I wanted to render in a particular way and so I needed to apply many layers of paint in order to create what I had in mind.
It is always difficult to know when a painting is completed; the smallness of this piece made it easier to "know" when it was completed...
The palette is a cool one.

Thanks so much for viewing my painting!

Purple Tree - swirling branches

This is my painting of a tree, that is mostly purple in color.... It is new for me in that I purposely did not pay closest attention to details, in an attempt to loosen up in my work.
Thanks for looking at my artwork, as usual!
I seem to be enjoying working with the colors of magenta and purple, lately.

Here is my first rendition of a tree for the new year, which is 2013! I created this piece using gouache on paper. It is small, measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

I hope that trees will continue to inspire me this year.
And, thanks so much for viewing my artwork!
