DAY 5 Abstract Mountain Landscape 30 in 30 Challenge



Mountain Stream
DAY 5 Well I never really know where the month goes to and it is already 5 days into this one, then it will be 3/4ths of the year and yep, the holidays are just next week.  Or so it seems.

Anyway, guess what snuck in while I was thinking about those pondering thoughts,  Just trying to do a loose abstract piece here and saw the shapes so decided to develop it for today's project.  A little use of staining colors and there you go.

Thanks much for stopping by.

  1. Love this! Reminds me of a trail I took many years ago with my daughter in New Hampshire! I can almost here the sound of water as we climbed the mountain. Funny how paintings trigger our memories.

    1. Hi Carol, I think that is one of the best compliments you could give, because we try to trigger memories, visual or otherwise. So funny, this was one it just came and not at all what I was thinking or expecting. The art gods give and they also take. Going to enjoy getting to know you and look forward to seeing more on Leslie's challenge and the blog.

    1. I think I am wishing for cold weather, been so hot and humid here, but very dry. Warm comfortable clothes, soups, stews and gray days sound pretty nice. Appreciate the feedback as I have been working on edges.

  3. Sometimes the painting just wants to come out. I love seeing the shading and colors in your whites. Lovely!

    1. I am really trying to go into this without a plan or drawing, just throw down color and go from there. So I never really know what I am going to get. Trying new tools and palette knife, thinking that will keep me loose. But, got a long way to go. Hoping by the end of the month I will feel like I have an idea of what is going on.

  4. Moody! Or maybe it is just me, LOL. This makes me think a storm is coming, or maybe just passed and that is why the river is so full. I can hear the water, and the distant boom of thunder. I love gloomy days and rain and thunder and lightning. Because yes, then it is time for warm soups and toasty socks. My first thought was that this was too dark. But on looking again, (and again), I think there is plenty of light in the creek and throughout. :) Nice the hint of color in the sky :) Well done!

    1. Yeah, it is a funny kind of sky but I kind of like the unique glow. This has gotten more love than I expected it to receive. It is different but not yet where I think I really want to go. That old elusive voice just is still suppressed.

  5. Looks like you are definitely thinking of the coming winter Nelvia. I think it is interesting how this landscape snuck in while you were thinking other thoughts as you so rarely do them. Nice piece and I look forward to more 'abstracts'

    1. Thanks Val, you are right I don’t do them as I usually fail so miserably. I am working on some though and hope to get past my phobia
