More works in progress

One of reasons I renamed this blog " A work in progress" is because I am always so excited about what I am working on that I can never wait until it is finished to share it with others.  So here are two of my latest paintings.

This first one, is really almost finished.  The only problem is that it needs a little bit more.  There are two issues with that:  1.  I'm not sure exactly what to add to finish it and 2.  I don't want to ruin it with whatever I decide to add.
  
"Growing", 12" X 20", acrylic mixed media painting on panel
Here is the second painting.  I was calling her "Sparkle Girl" for awhile until I came across a quote from Francis Bacon, "Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake...".  So now her title is "We only have this moment".  

This is my first 'commission' of sorts - well at least my first painting started at someone else's request.  She still has more work ahead of her.  I can't wait to see what happens next!
