Some New Work

I have been working with my gouache paints lately and getting some interesting results. This is just a sketch I made. I can see some interesting possibilities for patterns in here. Sometimes I just like to make triangles. They fit together easily and I don't have to think too much. Right now I cannot think too much. Life is still in turmoil due to a family crisis and I can only tell you that it will be for some time to come.

In August we are going out to the Tucson house for a couple of weeks before school starts for my grandson here. Then we won't be out there again until Christmas vacation week. A long time. Light years really as our retirement plans have been put on hold. Don't ask.

Pattern #216

This is the first artwork I have done in a few weeks. Life is in turmoil right now. That is about all I can say about what is going on.

About a month ago I bought some new gouache paints. I have always loved working in gouache but my paints were so old they were hard as a rock for the most part. So I bought fresh new ones. Today I played with them and created a new pattern. It felt good to finally do something creative.  Especially in a medium I really enjoy.
