That Elusive Certain Something

I was talking with a friend about some new landscapes I've been working on called the Nebulous series; yet for the life of me I couldn't describe them.  I am  trying to paint something... to capture something that I can't seem to put into words. I'm fascinated  at looking at pictures of the galaxy, especially of  gaseous nebula. I want to paint the sky the colors of nebula  & bring the sky into the ground & vice-versa. I want it to feel dreamlike, other worldly,   mysterious and compelling (but not  far out sci-fi) .  I want the viewer to look at the paintings and want to linger & wonder. 

These are the first three... I love these paintings & can see they're getting closer to it, but that "certain something" still eludes me.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And then, this one. 
Nebulous IV

You might have seen the beginning of this painting on my last post

It was to be an abstract with collage accents when I picked up paint instead of acrylic medium. With each stroke of color I could see the painting was attaining that nebulous dreamlike feel. 
So far, this one captures that elusive certain something more than the others, but now I am hopeful that I might be able to attain it.

  1. Beautiful Paintings! I love the colors, how you paint the sky and the light in it. For me they have the feel of dreamlike and they seem to draw me in.:)
