Today’s Daily Journal Painting

Arches, SOLD
Today’s painting was begun long ago in a galaxy far away! Actually, it’s been sitting around the studio for at least 6 months. I decided to paint over the attempted landscape with a new spiral abstract.(inspired by Jessica Torrant) Figured I would keep the name, Arches. This is another H2O oil on canvas board, 8 x 10. It can be found in my Etsy shop.

  1. I was just looking at the art that was posted on Etsy today and saw this and recognized it as yours before I even clicked on the painting. I had to come on over and comment. It’s a little darker than your other paintings, I really, really like it! It’s nice you looked at it with fresh eyes!

    Congratulations on the gallery show.

    Thanks Cynthia! I like the way it came out too. I think I may try more similar to it. Maybe in a bigger format. I don’t know, I’m all over the place these days trying new stuff.

    That’s awesome that you recognized it as mine!

  3. What wonderful work Paula! I put my work aside from time to time as well. 😉 Do not feel alone in that. 🙂 It was VERY thoughtful of you to write about Jess as well! She is a great inspiration to me too. 🙂 ALOT of artist’s are including you!Thank you for that!

  4. Gee, when I first saw this painting I thought of snorkeling in the ocean. I like it and am glad you went back to the painting with a new outlook.

    Thanks Angela and mom,
    It’s nice to be thought of as an inspiration!
    I can see where you would get the feeling of snorkeling!


  6. I think this is really nice painting.
    I know what you mean about being all over the place, but really that is a good thing, to play that is. It is out of playing that little gems start to grow into something special.

  7. Oh I love your work 🙂 Thank you for visiting my blog too btw~ I’m bookmarking your blog so that I can make a habbit to check it out!

    Thanks Jafa, you are so right, I love playing, don’t you?

    Thanks for visiting and commenting, your kind words have made my day! I have bookmarked your blog as well. 🙂

  9. I especially like this work. I wondered if you are influenced by Celtic art? I love Celtic spirals and Celtic art even though it is very far apart from my own work. I think perhaps I was a Celt in a former life! You might be interested to take a look at the work of Bernard Casimir (link on my blog).

    Thanks for putting a link to me in your blog – I have done the same. Nice to meet you and good luck with the show.
