The Abstract Nature of Water





It was a dark and stormy day..
yesterday..

and I had every intention of
finishing my journal pages...











so that I could share them with you here
today...







Caterina Giglio, WIP, The Nature of Water, Acrylic on canvas, 3' x 4' 





but my muse wanted to paint instead..
and being rather indulgent of the child artist within,

we just went with it...









I get lost in this painting..
it is 3' x 4' 


and when finished will take up a major wall
in my living room..








I have been working on it as time allows..
first the under painting and now the main body and soon 









Glazes will be applied to tone down the white at the top of the painting..
as you can see below...
the small photo that I am working on
as a reference..

And as long as I am sharing WIPs..
I might as well show you the biggest one of all.. 

I do hope to finish it soon..


my wall is very bare after all!





The Nature of Water, Caterina Giglio, Acrylic on canvas, 3' x 4'  WIP.. with reference photograph




but today I will be working on the 
pieces that I am sending to 
my amazing gallerie 
for this holiday season..

back to work..
back to the studio..


and by the way, all the books I am reading..
can be purchased by clicking on the image
and hopping over to Amazon..

thanks ever so much..

I started to come visit yesterday to see if you were safely out of the path of the hurricane. Then I got caught up in my own water dilemma. Your painting is stunning, realistic, and so unbelievably beautiful. I'm truly impressed and in awe, too.

I forgot to mention how pristine your fluid acrylics looked. Mine never look that good once I have used them.

Hi Catherine! I hope you do and it doesn't take you as long as mine!! I really want to finish it, but so many deadlines to meet!! Thank you for stopping by and letting me know you were here!!
