A Pair of Work in Progress Views of Little Bo Peep & An Abstract Painting



Most of my painting time this week went to finishing my Little Bo Peep painting for Nibblefest, this is a work in progress sketch I did not get a chance to post.  If you'd like to see her completed, she's on ebay here, or she's also a post down and there's a work in progress sketch below that.  The painting is a 5"x7" acrylic painting on canvas panel.


I also worked on this abstract painting a little bit.  This is layer one, there are sections I like, but I intend to paint over it in additional layers until I feel like I'm done.  I used to do abstracts quite often, but I have to be in the mood to paint them, and I really haven't felt like it for a very long time.  I'm not sure when I'll next feel the urge to work on this one, but this is where it's at right now.  It's an 18"x24" acrylic painting on canvas.  Quite a bit different from what I generally paint these days, but a lot of fun to work on!

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:
