Starting A Painting a Day

…or so.

I love the idea of doing a painting a day…whether or not I can is another story.

Here’s the first in awhile: an abstracted landscape in oil, 10″x10″.  Not sure if I’m done with it or not…

Peaceful Abstract Landscape by Karen Jacobs

Here’s another really gorgeous abstract landscape — makes me wish I were there (kind of like Robin Williams in “What Dreams May Come” or that bit in Akira Kurasawa’s movie (I think it may have been called “Dreams”) where Van Gogh wanders through his own paintings.

Anyway, I’d love to roll in a field of paint that looks like this. Luscious!  View more of Karen’s Work at her website.

Favorite painter of the day: Cheryl McClure, whose beautiful abstract landscapes I found online at the Jezebel Gallery. This is my favorite! Gorgeous colors and I love how it works as a landscape and also as purely abstract shapes. I’m really led into and through the painting by her use of color and shape.
