Good Morning Rio (Posterized Photo)

This image began as a photo that I took from the hotel room during a trip to Rio de Janeiro. The morning sun was beautiful in the original. Tonight I used Painter to posterized the image, enhancing it with bright pink and rose colors that reflect the excitement I felt waking up to Rio de Janeiro.

Blue Mountain Range (In the Alcove at Galatea)

On Monday, I drove into Boston to deliver this painting to Galatea Gallery. So now it is on display in the "Artists' Alcove" and will be up through July, and here is how it looks on the wall. I stayed for a couple of hours to help hang the work that will be on display in the main galleries this month, so I can tell you that there is some great art work at Gallatea in July.

Necklace with Flower Jade, Wood, and Copper

I started working on this necklace this morning, but couldn't get the design to work out. I finally finished it tonight after dinner. This is flower jade, wooden beads, and copper-colored metallic accent beads. I used stretchy cord, so there is no clasp.

Courtyard in Brasilia as of June 30, 2015

Several days ago, I started a sketch with the Brushes app on my iPhone, a courtyard in Brasilia, drawn from imagination and memory. (The original sketch is posted here, on June 19.) Tonight I went back to it and cleaned it up, still using the iPhone Brushes app.

Back to the Mountains (Framed)

This is the other painting that I framed yesterday. This one is also acrylic used as water media paint. These paintings are painted from imagination but inspired by memories of the Colorado Rockies.  I couldn't decide which painting to submit, so I took both of them with me today when I went to Galatea Fine Arts.

Blue Mountain Range (Framed)

This is one of my small acrylic water-media paintings, inspired by memories of the Colorado mountains. Tomorrow I am going to turn in a painting to Galatea Fine Arts (Boston, MA), to be on display in July in the artists alcove.  I couldn't decide between this painting and another one, so I framed them both.  (I will post the other one here tomorrow.)
