What's Next - daily painting,beach scene,contemporary painting,debbie miller

6x6 oil on panel By Now I am sure my regular collectors and followers think Ive gone completely mad. I know what they are saying - "Where are those little beach scenes we've come to know and love? Where is the representational work - What are those lines? and my Gosh, what is happening to the skin tones!?" There's no explaining it. It's just happening. The other stuff is not totally gone - if you ask, I'd be happy to paint one for you. Its just that right now THESE are rocking my world. I can't seem to stop

Don't you love babies at the beach? Or anywhere really -
My family is anxiously awaiting the birth of a new nephew/cousin - anytime now!

My brother and sister in law are expecting their second child - a boy - very soon. I am sure Dave will have him on a surf board by June :)

These are all about the gesture of the figure and the layers and interesting things going on in the negative space.
Sort of a painting on top of another painting with the under painting showing through.

This one I am going to paint again large - really feeling the composition and energy - of course the colors won't be the same but that is half the fun!

The yellow tones in this just won't photograph today.
I'm going mad trying to adjust...and on top of that its snowing.
Yup, that's right - snow - on our first full day of spring. rats.

Anyway - these next few paintings are a bit different from the older paintings. Taking my large scale process and shrinking it down to the itty bitty size.
When you paint a lot - things happen.
You develop and grow and change.
That's why painting is so fun!

-Oh Hello - My new favorite painting.

Where did this come from you wonder?
---Spring fever. - craving the warmth on my face, some green, blue skies and flowers.
---Take all that mix it up with some paint and good music from the ipod and this is what you get.

Do You Have Spring Fever? Its official - I do.

I'm officially done with the cold and snow.

Love winter but I'm looking forward to saying hello to spring.

My friend Anne Babineau took this picture last April of one of my painting on display at The Sunnyside Restaurant - just puts me in a spring-y mood.

This painting is still there and I may have to visit it soon and treat myself to some delicious daytime dining!!
