New Naturalist Style Northwest Collage Painting

I have three large paintings up this week, for about the next 5 days. This is the one chance you get to have these for about 75% off the gallery list. If they don't sell here now then I will have them in the gallery at Gallery 9 in Port Townsend if you would like to come on down and see them in person!

Talk to me, what's interesting about the piece? What do you like? Dislike? Not understand? Seriously, questions are more than welcome. Folks try to say that perspective on abstracts is objective...I beg to differ, it is quite subjective.

So feel comfortable asking about it...I really want to encourage it. :-)

Original Northwest Coast Inspired Abstract Painting

Hey Folks! This is the very latest in my Impressions Series of Abstract Paintings. Titled "Morning Calls" it really has to do with the very beginnings of the sun coming up, and the beginning sounds of the singing birds here in the Pacific Northwest Rain Forests. Deep, lush and absolutely beautiful. Abstract Expressionism, northwest style! Click on the image to view more on the piece and information on the starting bid at eBay, and thanks!

Long time....

Hey everyone. Im Nikki, the so-called "maintainer" of this community. I havent updated in ages but I've seen a few people making posts and I felt the need to say something. Anything. So here I am. Im going thru a transition period so my net access isnt secure and I havent unpacked my computer so I wont really be able to do anything of any importance until then. Im trying to think of some more things to put in this community. To make it more resourceful. Theres alot of talented folks joining and I dont want yall to think this community is BS. Its not, I promise ;)

More updates to come.
