I’ve Been Painting Like Crazy! September 14, 2007

Posted by greenlavender in Art, Energy, Life, My paintings, Paintings, Personal.

I actually did 4 paintings in a week! Plus, I am finishing a 4’x3′ painting that I barely started over 2 years ago. I am proud of myself.

Here’s one. I call it “Mountain Sun”. It’s oil on canvas (11″x14″).

I will post photos of the others as well, once they dry and they photograph better.

Keep up the good work.

Beautiful painting. One of my favorite shapes to use is the circle and curve so this painting really appeals to me.

I’m impressed with only 2 years for 3’x4′. There is a painting at Gettysburg that is something like 325′ x 26′ that was completed in 11 months. Pickup your speed a little please.

Funny. I should start painting a 325’x26′ canvas now, if I want it finished in 25 years.

It didn’t take me 2 years to paint the 3’x4′. I started it two years ago, spent about a day on it then put it away until two days ago. I just finished it today. I think 2 days work total for a 3’x4′ is pretty good for someone who’s been painting for only a few years.

9. pooja - March 23, 2008

if u don’t mind. can u tell me the meaning of this painting.

10. greenlavender - March 25, 2008

Thank you all.

pooja, what does it mean to you? That’s really what is important. When I paint, I let myself be guided to create art that helps me heal emotionally. Once it’s done, it’s up to the observer to decide what it means.

11. angie - April 3, 2008

Wow! I was looking for examples of artistic styles for a final project in my painting class. When I saw this, I began to rethink my project completely – very inspiring!

12. greenlavender - April 7, 2008

What a great compliment, thank you Angie. I’m glad it inspired you.

13. Ude Henry - April 8, 2008

beautiful color interactions, and the circles and smoothness of movements makes me appreciate the aspect of change in life. Congratulations! It’s beautiful :o)

20. Grace - February 20, 2009

Wow….this is so captivating…when I see it, it’s like Im seeing past just the paints, its almost moving, and I can see all the strokes and colors behind it….this is absolutely amazing. If I could call this something I had painted, I would feel so proud of myself and absolutely satisfied. I hope thats how you feel. =]

21. greenlavender - February 26, 2009

Thank you so much Crazy, ana and Grace!

Grace, I am proud of my paintings. Though I am scared to show them. I have so many more I have not yet posted.

Much love,

I can’t say I really SEE something in this like the rest of the people, and I can’t say I truly know how to judge art, but I just know these colors and shapes and the overall softness really appeals to the eye.

Is the brown the mountain, and the yellow the sun? It does look lovely.

23. greenlavender - July 7, 2009

Thank you Nezumi. It represents whatever you want it to represent. It’s whatever you see for you.

24. angeli - July 30, 2009

the curves are making the movement of the environment…and the diagonal rays of the sun makes me feel excited and a little tense.. 🙂

25. prejith - November 27, 2009

26. Minal - February 25, 2010

It’s an amazing painting… Can we see more of your work online?

27. Sean - March 6, 2010


I adore this painting and would like to ask your permission to use it as the album cover for my folk album, “Going-to-the-Sun”. I am a graduate student in the humanities and don’t have the resources to appropriately compensate you, but I would be very, very grateful for the chance to use this wonderful image for my own art.

Thanks and take care,
