Embarking Daybreak

I have been doing several paintings with these flocks of birds with various backgrounds. I am inspired by the beauty of flight and the flurry of birds when flocked together.

Sarah Goodnough Painting, Sustaining Harmony

Sustaining Harmony
36 x 36
Acrylic on Canvas

I had a lot of fun painting this one. It flowed rather easily, I found it to came together naturally. I have come to really enjoy painting these abstracts inspired by nature. They are a challenge and expand my thinking because there no pre-planning going into them. They are more of an intuitive kind of painting; balancing composition, color, and form as the painting evolves.

Painting, Delicate Splendor

Silver Leaf and Acrylic on Canvas

Happy Holidays. This painting was inspired from last years winter snow storms. My neighbor's apple tree still had apples and a thick layer of ice and snow covered the branches. The apples were frozen and icy, they looked like the crystal covered apples at Christmas time, they were absolutely beautiful. A real winter wonderland.
