Fast Paintings

"Blow Over"

Acrylic on Clayboard
"Down From the Mountain"
6" x 6"
Acrylic on Clayboard

Both of these paintings were completed a couple of nights ago during a sudden need to create. Each took about 5 minutes....or, as a fellow artist explains, these paintings took all of my life to do!
