After the storm yesterday, i woke up and looked outside my kitchen window to see this lovely abstract expressionistic painting Had to paint it right away.

Yesterday we had an unseasonal winter snow storm in the spring. Snow was mixing with a wind-whipped, frigid rain on Tuesday afternoon in the area, as a dangerous nor’easter continued to pound the region, creating dangerous driving conditions.
This morning is a completely different story.

I used an old canvas with several layers of paint and collage work underneath.All that past work helps to add excitement to the current brushwork.

Here is a link to  a couple of other paintings on the same subject-

Balancing Dreams
Mixed media on watercolor paper
12" x16"
$300

"Let your dreams be bigger than your actions, and your actions louder than your words" Anonymous
"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams." Oprah Winfrey
This painting is fourth in the "Balancing" series, inspired by my new love for modern/contemperory expression. To me the painting is about walking down the path of life and finding balance with your dreams and desires.  (Trying to incorporate the human figure in a painting with an inspiring message in a modern way.) The painting is open to interpretation by the viewer. 
American flag
Mixed media on paper
81"x 24"
Inspired by the historic events in our nation, i was moved to do a painting of the American flag while watching the inauguration ceremony of the 45th President of the United States.


The painting began as a watercolor, however it looked a bit dull the next day so i used several layers of acrylic, crayon and colored pencils to get the layered effect you can see specially in the stars.

Also excited to share with you a few other variations created in Photoshop.

Having fun with Photoshop filters using my original paintings. 2017 is the Year of the Rooster.
"New Year 2017 of the Fire Rooster will start on January 28, 2017 – the second New Moon after the Solstice.
I don’t know about you, but this Chinese astrologer is exhausted from the shenanigans of this past Monkey year! Surprise after surprise (both fabulous and panic-laden) swung most of our ways. Following 12 months of the wit and hyperactive Monkey, the New Year of the Fire Rooster  is going to bring fresh challenges requiring quick wit and practical solutions!
Get ready for the Year of the Rooster! Embrace opportunities and navigate challenges  We hope you have a healthy, prosperous year."

"The power of imagination makes us infinite" Romtam Kangsawiwat

Circular composition with infinity is something i always wanted to explore in an abstract painting. Using mixed media, pastels, ink and acrylic give an interesting, unique line quality to my work. The circle also makes it look like a portal.
This painting has been revised several times, you can see past versions here http://priti-fine-art.blogspot.com/2016/05/infinite-nature.html.
My son (the engineer came up with this new title) - The Möbius strip, also called the twisted cylinder, it is obtained by cutting a closed band into a single strip, giving one of the two ends thus produced a half twist, and then reattaching the two ends.http://mathworld.wolfram.com/MoebiusStrip.html
