New paintings

I just thought I would post some new paintings that I have finally completed. So far they don't have titles, but the running themes are end of summer, a night on the town, children, and solitude.

It's definitely fall in Minnesota, and there are a million amazing colors. We had this 78 degree day yesterday which is odd for mid October. The second picture reminds me of the colors all around, the way my kids have been raking the leaves into a big pile to jump in everyday after school. The first picture is about going to Dinky Town for dinner with my husband. It was so fun to drink wine and people watch with him. That was definitely on my mind when I was working on this piece.

I have been trying not to think about the final outcome of these paintings. I have just started with a palate of color, turned on some music and I am seeing where the shape and color leads me.

My favorite is the top one...I love the cranberry color in it. Both of course are beautiful though.
