RED TRUCK ON 7TH AVENUE
Nancy Herman
9" x 12"
oil on canvas board
As you probably have noticed I have not been painting much lately as I have been working on writing and illustrating a book.  That work is on hold for a bit so I began again to think about painting.  As usually happens when there is a hiatus in work this caused me to think seriously about what I was doing.  For years I have been trying to use more paint and work with simpler shapes.  Yet I always end up making rather complicated compositions even though I am working quite small.  Apparently I am stuck with a desire to paint a complicated scene so I decided to use the computer to simplify the composition using several "filters" in photoshop.  Then I mixed my paint into a juicy pile and went to work filling the shapes created.  I am enjoying this method.
This is the first painting I completed.  Unfortunately my scanner is broken so I had to take a photo of the painting which leaves it looking quite flat.  It actually has some texture as I am trying to allow the juicy paint to describe the shapes.  The next painting has more texture.  The third in this series is going to be larger so I will have room for even more texture.  It is rather funny I think that it is so difficult for me to use more paint.  I must coax myself into it.

Prams on Martha's Vineyard Original Art Painting by Daily Painter of Pennsylvania Mary Beth Brath

Prams on Martha's Vineyard by Mary Beth Brath
8x10" Acrylic on Canvas

"Prams" was painted this month in my studio from a photograph I took last summer on Martha's Vineyard. My husband and I sat on a small dock and had lunch at this location. The building is the typical color and design of many of the buildings around the island. Many of the trees naturally bend to the side from years of standing guard against the weather.

Rockville Bridge, Susquehanna River

An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


'Misty Morning Train'
Rockville Bridge on the Susquehanna River
Harrisburg, PA
Oil on Linen Panel
12 x 16

I set out one morning to get some photographs of
a few of my favorite bridges across the
Susquehanna River.  I loved the softness that the
morning mist created, and was so fortunate that
a train crossed over the Rockville Bridge while I was there!

"Street Corner" , Pastel.

"Street Corner"
12 x 16"
Pastel with WC on multimedia pastel panel.

Another studio work depicting beautiful and bright San Miguel De Allende.  
This is the place new with the central square (Le Jardin).
I did some street sketching there, but wanted to have it as bigger piece
done in studio. So with all my sketches and some photos I took
here is result. I had to edit many things out - as a traffic, crowds etc
and make this piece more personal and calm. For me it is about light
and color and not so much about people and action.. however I added a single figure
 of man to give this work even more interest. 
He is a part of this town and carry its colors, but what do we know about him?..
What he is waiting for?.. What he is looking at?..
Maybe he lives there, but maybe he is another traveler, as myself, who is here
only for the moment of time enjoying and observing and being part of it?..
Regardless... this is finished. And this is my biggest up to date painting is soft pastels.

BREEZY DAY By Cecelia Lyden

acrylic/canvas
11x14

So convenient to spy and paint a scene from your balcony. This feathery tree was blowing so gracefully in the breeze--the clouds were moving and looked so pretty in the sunny blue sky--just had to paint it. I set up on the balcony and easily spent two days doing so.

PARIS SEWED UP. Digital Collage. Shelby Pizzarro

PARIS SEWED UP - Digital Collage
Ah...Paris in the Springtime. And Spring is such a dreamy season. It is when we finally are able to shake off this icyWinter weather. It won't be long before the season of warm sweet breezes caresses us. I am ever hopeful.

The next challenge for the Lunagirl Moonbeam Design Team is "Sewing".  I do appreciate the talent of anyone who can sew. Although my Mom is an excellent seamstress, it was a skill I never mastered.

When looking through the beautiful Lunagirl images, the woman with the wistful smile appealed to me.  When I think about sewing, this is how I feel. As I hope for Spring, I am ever hopeful that someday I will go beyond my very skillful button replacement sewing and hem stitching upping. So when I think of sewing my thoughts run to Fashion and Fashion comes home to Paris.

I wanted the woman to take center stage in the work. From my own digital ephemera collection I started the piece with a postcard of the Eiffel Tower with postage stamp. I added pattern paper complete with directions. And a dream isn't a dream unless you have a limitless sky surrounding you. I finished the collage with the joyfully optimistic yellow roses...perhaps a symbol of her future in Fashion Design!

I guess my sewing dreams, like thoughts of Spring, will continue. Is there a skill you are ever hopefully wanting to master?

'Summer Flowers'
Oil on Linen Panel

.The past two weeks of this Winter we have been having
single digit temperatures and windchills in the negative 
numbers. My mind has turned to thoughts of the garden, 
and  the beautiful colors of summer flowers, and so
it is only natural that my paintbrush has followed...
