A second colour added.

"Coffee Break"
5"x 7" oil and archival board

Hi again.  Someone at work is off because of illness so I'm working a lot more than normal.  I did do a bit of painting though (ten minutes).  I added a little white to the one I'm working on from my new tube of water soluble oil, but it's not quite done yet.  I think the painting looks a little top heavy so I think I'll still have to add something to the bottom.  I'll show you how I plan to do that on my next post.  'Till then, be blessed.
ps. If you don't think I should add to the bottom, let me know.

  3. I love it as it is; I'd not add a thing! This is coming along so beautifully!

  4. Thanks everyone. I have decided to leave the quiet area at the bottom. It seems to suit the theme of Coffee Break, a time for quiet. Thanks again for your comments.

  5. Bonnie I think this is beautiful. You have just the right touch of color and I love the reflections of the coffee cup and daisies in the pot. You have a cute signature! I think that your signature at the bottom balances the composition. Wonderful!

  6. By the way Bonnie thank you for your response about insecurity in painting. It was very helpful. I feel better. The word I used was too strong of a word. Sometimes I fee insecure. However, artists are strong people - we have to push pass doubt - but we never give up! My 'movie' should be out soon. Can't wait to share with everyone!

  7. Hi Bonnie,

    I have a friend that uses the water soluble oils.
    Are you using the medium too?
    I've been playing around with the medium she gave me to try.
    I'll be waiting to hear how you like this medium!

  8. Just leave well alone it is just fine the way it is . Hope you are well you do so sound good.

  9. "Coffee Break" looks lovely! I like how the flowers and coffee cup are reflected in the coffee pot. Also, the white part on the wall in the background reminds me of the sun, bright and cheery!
