Scarlet Love

Scarlet Love.  As winter is nearing its end I’m discovering a new love for scarlet red. I’m painting and photographing all things in warm scarlets and fiery reds more and more as the  weeks progress.  I am taking advantage of my “scarlet love”  while it lasts.

Things will change in a few weeks.  Temperatures will soar into the 90’s reaching 100 plus, then my palette infatuation will change again. I’ll be painting cool aquas and turquoise, nice refreshing colours.    I know, just call me fickle!

My Scarlet Love won’t last forever, but it will last for  one more brush stroke, one more painting!

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

    1. hi Sharon, thank you for your comments!! very kind of you 🙂 I’d just noticed that everything I was seeing and doing was that scarlet red! which is odd, as I’m not a ‘red’ person in general. I appreciate your comments.
