Another large triptych in the Currents & Eddies series.

I may not post my painting for the 30-paintings-in-30-days challenge until this evening, or maybe tomorrow. While the first few days of the challenge have been going on, I’ve also been completing this second large triptych for Lakeview Hospital in Stillwater, MN.  The three panels are 24×18″, 24×12″ and 24×12″.

Both triptychs are for the surgery area. This one will hang across from the registration desk and the larger one that I posted earlier will be at the entrance to the surgery area itself.

Triptych with water shapes and colors. Painting by Lynne Baur.

Large triptych in the Currents & Eddies series. (The “giant painting”.)

The panels for the larger triptych are 30×30″, 30×10″ and 30×10″.

Both paintings are now in the drying/curing stage before isolation coat and varnish.

(In case you did’t catch them before, I’ve added the video of how I started this larger triptych and the time-lapse video of it in progress to the bottom of this page.)

My Cure for Winter Blues

Wild and garish? Sure, but I can always paint over it (or parts of it) later. For now, it has the same effect on me as opening a brand-new box of 64 Crayolas. Just what I needed to get me past the “winter blues”!

What Makes a Good Painting?

That pesky inner critic! I don't know about you, but simply telling her to sit down and shut up doesn't work for me. Oh, I can get her to leave me alone. It just doesn't lead to paintings I'm happy with. I need my inner critic. We all need time to explore, experiment...

“No Mistakes” Art-Making

Do you ever make mistakes when you're working in your journal? Or doodling? Ever put down a wobbly line? Smear some ink? Drip watercolor where you didn't mean to? How does it make you feel? Perhaps a bit aggravated or disappointed? Do you ever want to tear a page out...

The “Giant” Painting is Now 3 Panels

Ulp! It's a scary moment when I finally make the decision where to divide one of these "starts" into the individual panels.  No going back! But, I'm happy with where things stand. Even though the paper edges weren't square, so I'm going to barely have enough height on...

Update on the “Giant Painting”

Here's where things stood last time: And now:                 Doesn't look much different yet, does it? At this stage, I tread softly, slowly "carving" into the whites and lights so I don't lose the freshness of the washes. You...
