Summer and this economy: all the artists I know are cutting back on entering shows because of the cost factor, sales are down in the galleries and galleries are closing, and, anyway, people are traveling. So much for the doom and gloom.
I choose to look at this as a time to play. Play with paint.
Without any preconceived notions of what my style is, without any restrictions by buyers, galleries, art contests, I am free to experiment, and I am having so much fun!
"Blossoms and Boots", which is shown on the front page of my website, is an exercise in bright, primary colors - a lot of hot and bright on hot and bright. Lively, and certainly not restful.
"Sitting Pretty", which is at the top of this blog, contrasts a lot of cool colors against a pop of warm color. Kinda nice.
More to come. I'm thinking cool on cool. It would be a trick not to be boring, I am guessing, but that's the fun of "playing in paint".
