Abstract Landscape Painting in Oil and Graphite by Texas Artist M.Allison

30 X 32  Oil, Graphite
contact me:

I was asked to do a demonstration at the Brenham Art League
in Texas and was given an hour to paint and instruct.  Wow - that's
not much time!  I did tweek this somewhat when I got back to the
studio, but basically this was it.  The reason I really like this is because
it gives the impression of many different things.  Some see cows, 
some see trees, but more than a few see pianos, hence the title.  I tell
you what - it was really fun to do and the people there were great.
I'm going to do a workshop there on August 21st.  Get your seats now!

Abstract Landscape by Texas Artist M.Allison

Life on the Hill
20 X 24  oil

Contact me:
As I worked on this painting, I got a call from my sister and she said, 'How's
it coming?'.  My reply was 'not liking it'. That little intercession gave me a 
new view and I began reworking the whole thing and ended up very pleased
with it.  Just goes to show.  It can always be revamped!

I rarely do Still Lives (lifes ?) but I loved doing this one and will do more.
I seem to go in spurts of blogging (wish I could be more consistent).  I always
vow to do better so stay tuned!
