More paintings for January

Thomas's Signature Symbol  I’m continuing to experiment with different thickeness of paint marks and the effects of water on acrylics.  I love to watch the colorful drips created by the water spray bottle.  Instead of space paintings, I am now working a lot in abstract and exploring color.  I also adding my special signature into many of my paintings.  It’s a special symbol I made up all by myself and I love it.  Isn’t it cool?

This first painting, I titled ‘DDDrrriiippppppiiinnnggg’.  The drips looks like the move slowly down the canvas.  Don’t you like my brush strokes in this one?

This next painting is a flashback to my ‘Heart on Vines’ charcoal drawing.  I love the bright background and the palette knife marks I made in this one.

I love this one!  Don’t you love my green signature worked into this painting?  I used color in some places and texture in others to create a design over the signature shape.
