Happy New Year!

Goodmorning and I hope everyone has a blessed New Year in 2015! I felt like I accomplished so much that I've been wanting to do in 2014, but still have a long way to go. I always try to find time to create everyday, but that seems like an unrealistic goal, with work and all. One of my goals, is to try to work more with oil paints. How about you? Any new goals for the new year?
Below is a painting I started several months ago, and finally have it at least close to being finished. It's from a dream I had many years ago. I showed it to a couple of friends, but they didn't seem to like it. I couldn't tell if it was the subject or its just a horrible painting. (I admit the wings need some more work!) What do you think?
I've been sketching more. Here are just a couple.
I'm linking to Sunday Sketches with the very talented Alexandra. I hope you will join me!

I guess I haven't been here for a while. You've completed some wonderful paintings recently! Happy creating in 2015.

The painting looks like a page from a picture book--highly narrative and engaging . . . perfect point in the story to hook the viewer . . . what is going to happen? Who are those shadow creatures? I won't go into dream analysis ;) I like it and hope you show it to us again when you've finished.

Great sketches too! The subject in the second one looks like she is very suspicious of something going on to the left of her. That's not an easy angle of the face to compose--well done! :)

Alexandra said...

Wonderful sketches. My favorite is the second one. Well done. I think the painting might be something people may not connect with because it's an interpretation of a dream you had - not that it's "bad". Hope this helps. :)

Happy SS and wishing you the very best in 2015! :)

I think it's a marvelous idea to have creative goals too. They help us grow and strengthen our artistic skills. Happy New Year!

I like your faces a lot! The first one is very illustrative. The subject matter is different, I'm going to guess that the people who saw it were reacting to the subject matter...

I think it is a magical painting with a very dreamlike feeling to it, which is perfect since it was inspired by your dream.

i am working on a painting right now, inspired by last weeks dreams of a mountain lion.

lovely to see what you have been creating. Lovely 2015 to yoU!
