Paintings in Progress

I decided to take stock of the paintings I have going right now. This isn;t all of them, just the ones that I want to finish. For quite a while now I’ve been having trouble getting motivated to paint. While on vacation I felt driven to paint more, after the first week. Even this weekend I had 4 days off and I started the two small painings at the bottom of the pic, on the floor. I only started these Sunday night, and after midday tuesday… well I stopped working on them too. It’s strange…

Looking over the variety of paintings here is strange too. I’ve always known I’m all over the place with subjects, but this is the first time I’ve taken a group shot. There’s 2 paintings from my head, one of my cat, 2 still life paintings, and a self portrait. To top it off, while they are all oil paintings I’m using different techniques on most of them. *sigh*

edit: just a note on scale, the black one is 24×30 inches.

  1. Oh my lord,

    this so reminds me of the way I go about creating my art. Only I do seldom have the patience of doing it all in oil. I am not surprised you have that many unfinished pieces. It takes so long to dry for the oil paint to dry. Then, while you´re waiting you move on to the next piece and they soon start mounting up. But judging by the creations I have seen, you should definately keep finishing them as they look great. And just like you, I also am all over the place with art. But a great many people like that particular fact as it gives more variety to an artist. After all, would it not be boring if it were all the same?
