New Painting

24 x 30
Acrylic on canvas

I love this painting! This is the best thing I've done so far.

Now I understand when asked to name their favorite book, movie, or painting that writers, actors, or artists often reply, "the one I'm working on right now."

Since I hadn't done a large canvas painting in a long time, I challenged myself to begin something I could show in an upcoming June exhibit through the San Antonio Watercolor Group. Instead, I might enter it in their fall juried competition or in a different juried event with the San Antonio Visual Artists.

But right now, I'm so in love with it I don't want it to go anywhere!


  1. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Really like what I'm seeing on yours - like this great painting!

  2. I can see why it would be hard to let this one go. I evokes such a feeling of solitude and peace. I love the painting's colors graphic boldness. Can't wait ertsee more.


  3. As you can see, it's too early for me to type competently!!!!

  4. I'm with you, Gina--this painting is stunning! And a big leap beyond anything that comes before it. You have entered a new universe!

  5. Gina, this is a great blog...enjoyed every single entry, especially the gelatin monoprints. I definitely will try this again now that I've seen your inspiring results. And the blog about your art class was great, too. In fact, I think you and I have a lot in common. . . I, too, thought I wanted to write at one time. Again, great blog and have put you on my favorites list.

  6. Thank you everyone for your very kind comments. What a wonderful world cyberspace art blogging is!
