New work

untitled watercolor by Kerry Steele

I have been hard at work in my studio lately finishing pieces destined for places other than my shop for the most part.
It involves much of the non-creative parts like wiring, painting edges, and packing the canvases. Its not terrible work but it is hard to switch back into creative mode.
 I did finish a few new things too.
The watercolor was from a few weeks ago and I just could not decided whether it was finished until now.

"Dig it" oil on 24 x 36 inch canvas
 I have really been wanting to do a blendy, feminine abstract after so many florals and I finished this one on Friday night. You may have seen it if you follow me on Instagram. Not sure where this will end up.

"Alight" oil on 16 x 20 canvas

I also did a knife painting, ala my friend Sally Kelly, who mixes color on her canvas with palette knives. It will be on Etsy as soon as it dries.

"Miserlou" 30 x 40 mixed media on canvas
I put a priority on some larger canvases this weekend so that crate building could happen this week.

"Les Parapluies" 36 x 48 oil on canvas
"Les Parapluies", or the umbrellas, is my favorite of the bunch.

What did you do this weekend?
