Lapis in Gold Setting
Often all that's needed is a little 'wrapping it up'. Sometimes the paintings that have to be the most patient are the ones that I like best. When I see potential, I get scared of ruining it. I try to figure out what I want it to be about before I simply paint to the finish. I knew I wanted to retain the freshness of the tree-line and the boats. I did decided to brighten the water and work in the mid-ground grass, then I called it a wrap.
Sort of like prepping meals before company comes- most of the work was done in advance. Then it felt nice to complete and sign three paintings in one day. This month I have a great motivation- a solo show! My first, and I am very excited for the opportunity and for the honor of representation by Art Praha European Galerie, downtown Pensacola. My "Journal of Light and Color" will open on Gallery Night January 28th!
