Thinking about starting two projects. Both small, just for fun and see what happens.

I have a couple of 11x14 canvas already primed and I'm thinking about on one doing a total abstract....just playing with color.

On the other I'm thinking about an ocean with clouds in the sky and just concentrating on lights and darks in the water. I'll have to see if I can find a reference or maybe I'll just wing it.

Right now I have two I'm working on --- well three if you count fixing the desert scene.

I've been thinking about doing work in progress threads. Maybe I will.

Cool Terry.

I bought some small detail brushes, some paint (Galleria Prussian Blue and Permanent green Deep?) and two 18 X 24 Canvases during my lunch break. I work too close to these stores:-) I may start over on my Ben Saber Sunset on a larger size canvas. I know when I did his cabin scene that my first try was pretty poor but my second came out OK. I really want to copy his as exact as I can get it. That reminds me, I need to print out a color wheel.

I find that I can get really economical large canvases in Walmart. They are pretty good quality too. My 24x30 was two for $20.

Ooh TerryCurley I can't wait to see the abstract, I think that will be fun.

Sometimes I think about doing that thing I see on Pinterest all the time where you hang up a white sheet outside and just throw paint at it. Messy, but fun!!
