I’ve been meaning to get back into painting, so I took some time today to paint this one…

That’s beautiful. You painted it in one day??
January 3, 2013 at 6:13 pm
Thank you! Yes… It took about five hours, but the time flies by once I get started.

Wow! Good for you. I suppose painting is like writing. Once you’re into it, you just keep going. I can’t imagine how long that painting would have taken me.

This is so beautiful!!
January 3, 2013 at 6:22 pm
Thanks! I’m glad you like it.

I expected to see something totally different than this….this is beautiful. I, too, am surprised you did it in one day.

This is really nice! I love your reds here. I’m working on getting back into both drawing and painting, too, so it was really nice to see someone else’s work who is doing the same thing. I haven’t done any for 3-4 weeks, and your new painting is inspiring me to get out my things immediately!

Glad to be an inspiration!

Love it, what did you call it?
January 3, 2013 at 7:49 pm
Hmm… Good question. Any suggestions?

I like “More than Meets the Eye” because to me it looks like the landscape is being seen through an eye shape.

Nice work! I see you paint in acrylics too. I’ve been doing a little bit myself lately, as I entered the Linden postcard show (open to pieces 30 x 30cm and smaller), which has been a good kick in the pants to actually get out the brushes. I find it very relaxing – must be something to do with the non-verbal brain. Do you find that too?

I think you’re right about the non-verbal brain. When I need to get away from writing but still want to express myself, painting gives me the perfect outlet. I also think there’s less pressure with painting since I’m not trying to do it professionally, as opposed to writing. With writing, I have a much stronger internal editor that always lets me know when something isn’t working. With painting, I just see where it takes me.

I LOVE it! I think it’s your best one yet! Although you painted it in January, call it “Red October”

Great title! I’m glad you like the painting! Thanks!

I like it! The colors warm up an otherwise stark landscape. It is like a brilliant soul walking into a cold room. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
That’s a lovely description! Thank you!

Marvelous! I am compelled to gaze at it for some time. Thanks for sharing.

I’m glad you like it!
January 4, 2013 at 8:27 pm

Happy New Year to you, too! Enjoy your art day!

Geeze, Marc, are you Michelangelo reincarnated?! Now you just have to create a flying machine (in one day)….
January 5, 2013 at 3:25 pm
Good idea! Rest assured that it will be powered by red balloons.
January 5, 2013 at 3:54 pm
Ha! Let’s see it, baby! :-]
January 7, 2013 at 8:46 pm
This is GLORIOUS!!!!!!!!
January 7, 2013 at 10:46 pm
I’m glad you like it! Thank you!

That’s fantastic, Marc . . . wish I had a talent with paints and brushes!
January 16, 2013 at 12:14 pm
Thanks! It’s a very satisfying hobby.
