That Elusive Certain Something

I was talking with a friend about some new landscapes I've been working on that had a bit of a  Nebulous feel; 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 want it to feel dreamlike, other worldly,   mysterious and compelling.  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.:)
