Work in Progress

Work in Progress, Tropical Garden, Acrylic, by Lucinda Howe

Last week I gave you a lot to read, so this week I’ll make it easy for you.  Watch the short video below to see a large painting in progress.  Plan to come to visit during the Columbia Open Studio weekend May 21-22, 2011 to see if I have finished the piece. Hope to see you soon!

My husband and I enjoyed a great trip to Aruba last week.  Here is a painting done in about an hour in the shade of a palapa on the beach near where he was snorkeling.

Sunny Palms

Last Dance Acrylic 11x14"

This week I’m continuing the tropical garden theme.  Isn’t it nice to remember the  warmth of the tropics during a cold snap in the winter?  This abstract palm painting has the same sunny color scheme as the bathroom mural I was working on last week.  The dominant yellow is contrasted with blue purple shadows and accents of red-purple and blue-green.

Wishing you the warmth of the tropics for your holiday season!
