Showing this a bit larger, so you can see some of the details. I love the grid marks on the left. That is the panel texture. These panels started with leftover paint on my palette. A swish here, a few marks there. Shiraz, blue, turquoise, rusty orange.
To finish, I added collage, dots and circles. Light Ivory painted on, and rubbed off. Kiwi green, and white Neocolor scribbles. The green is showing much more neon than it is in person. I really feel as if I did, well, not much at all. The bloom was pure accident. It all came together quickly. Nice when that happens!
Great art to see at Leslie’s 30 In 30 Blog!

Beautiful! Love the mark making and textures. Such beautiful colour – and yes! I see the dancer too. This painting gives me such a good feeling.
So nice to hear Janet! Cool that you see her. These have all been fun to work on 😉
So cheerful,lovely colors and energy!!
So glad you like it Lana 🙂
Hi Sheila, so good to see your work again. I love this abstract piece: the movement of your marks, the words and lightness, just right.
Thank you Corinne. The word were a gift really, I grabbed a piece of scrap, and all three were on it. So glad you enjoyed it 🙂 (And it is great to hear from you as well!)
Fun how things just happen, these simple things present themselves that help you make something. Love that.
And I did not see it right off. Guess I wasn’t looking for it, for any “thing”. Second look it was there plain as the nose on my face, LOL. Happy creating to you Corinne 😉
I see a swirling dancer with her arms raised in that giant bloom. I like the energy on this one, the movement.
Love that Laurelle! Took another look… I can see her too 😉
Super bloom Sheila – it is so nice when that happens!. I really like the dots and the lines on the side. It all ties together so nicely.
It is Val. Have to love those little surprises 😉 So glad you feel it all came together! Happy creating my friend 😉
Perfect for February! Love your new freedom, not defined borders, layering colors, scribbles and what not.

You can use this little phrase when you want to say all right, way to go, or a job well done. You’re picking up all kinds of new information with this focus on phrases, Kol HaKavod!
Thank you Carol! Both for the compliment and for the language lesson. Always a joy to learn something new! KOL HAKAVOD to you I am sure! See you at your blog soon my friend 😉
I love those grid marks, too. A swish here, a mark there, and all with your leftover paint. This has your beautiful signature look with each brushstroke, Sheila. Your paintings make me feel good.
Aww, Thanks Laurie. Couldn’t wish for more than that 😉
Sheila, love this Easter basket of delights: the spring colors, some scribbly grass, a few jelly beans, a fine tooth comb and pastel ribbons for my hair, gentle temperate air coming through the window screen.
You are HUMMIN’ with this 30in30!
HUMMMMMMM 🙂 Thank you Dotty for your delightful description.. I have to go look for those jelly beans…. 😉 LOL
