California Coast


Somewhere on the California Coast
3.5 x 2.5 oil on playing card

The cards I've worked on these last couple of days were "reclaimed"... I found them on the street actually a long time ago. So they have a few divets or pock marks from being run over. They are adequate for my initial experiments. Though I have several decks of cards in the house which we never use. I will gesso them this weekend and get them ready to work on.
What to do with the miniature paintings? Well, they are the size of the ACEO - or art cards - so they can be framed, matted or floating, or compiled in an album collection.

What a cool idea! I'm always doing miniatures on cardboard, but your idea is brilliant:) The two you've done are awesome!

Robin, have "stumbled" across your blog...probably from Leslie Saeta (sometimes I get lost out in Blogland, and can't quite remember how I got there..)Anyway..do enjoy your work...and these playing cards are just terrific- love what you have done so far! I am a watercolorist and daily painter too...trying to figure how i could do something as resourceful as that. looking forward to following your work!

What a great solution to this month's challenge: three paintings that together create a strong design and are individually intriguing. As always, I love your handling of the paint. Loose and full of life.

Your comment about my last painting means a lot to me. Your choice of the word "voice" inspires me to keep exploring. I know you will too!
