Getting back to my weekly art auctions. This week’s auction is a daily journal painting from 2007. During this period, I custom built several wood frames for my daily journal paintings. I wanted a frame that I could paint on so the painting could be continued into the frame. This was the result of that experiment. If memory serves me, I did 8 of these paintings. This is the only one left! Click on the image to go to the auction page. Thanks for looking and happy bidding! 🙂
“Spokes of the Sun”, 12 x 12″ oil painting on canvas board, framed with a handmade, hand painted wood frame which is painted to be a part of the piece, starting bid $20

This week I couldn’t decide which painting to put up for auction, so I choose TWO! Same starting bid, $9.99!
Three new paintings, daily journal size, that I finished this week. These are all 8 x 8″ oils on canvas boards and available in my Etsy shop.
Finally getting back to some semblance of a normal schedule after all the excitement of the past month. I had gall bladder surgery on March 31st after being sick for months. Starting to feel normal again, not totally healed yet, but getting there. April 2nd was the 2nd anniversary opening reception here at Chroma Studios gallery. We had an awesome turnout, of course I don’t remember much about it since I was still doped up from my surgery. Last week was a wash, I was back in the gallery but didn’t get much accomplished since I was still recovering from surgery.
So, this week, I am back in the studio every morning. Working on getting back to a regular painting schedule. I finished two small paintings this morning. They are 8 inch square oil paintings on canvas board. A return to my “Daily Journal” series. Hopefully I can start doing at least one of these everyday again. I think it was the beginning of 2008 that I abandoned this series. We opened Chroma Studios around that time and then in April my dad passed away. At that point, everything went out of whack. I’ve been trying to get back to a daily painting routine ever since. Now is the time, I can’t live without painting everyday, it makes me crazy! Another thing I’ve wandered away from is regular blogging. Working on getting that back too.
Below are the two newest paintings, they will be available in my Etsy shop sometime today. $50 each or add a frame for $70.
Release, 8 x 8" oil on canvas board, $50
Sun Energy, 8 x 8" oil on canvas board, $50
