This is the bottom half of "Meditation," a painting which is still in process. The view is a reflection on the surface of Ball Pond in New Fairfield Connecticut, as seen this fall. This reflected tree being one of the last to bear leaves, offered a window into the depths where newly fallen leaves lay submerged, still sporting color. - Nancy Boudreau
This section of "Meditation" is 24" x 24" acrylic on cotton canvas sealed with high gloss clear acrylic.

This morning, some body has been added to "Ouija". The last abstract, "Contemplation" was built with bright pure colors, layered and layered. This time "dirty color" is applied in soft, small brushstrokes. By "dirty" I mean three or more contrasting colors blended on the pallet, then daubed gently into the contours of the image. The intention at this stage is to build powerfully large forms, sensitively rendered. - Nancy Boudreau
First look at "Ouija" as the painting begins. At this point, the painting is comprised of pastels with clear matte gel acrylic applied in an automatic writing style. The idea of a ouija board came to mind while working, gray lines, like writing, becoming the bones of the painting's structure, foretelling the outcome. - Nancy Boudreau
This painting is 34" x 50" on stretched cotton duck canvas.
