Past and present.
Color in brilliant bursts of blue, red, orange.
A kaleidoscope of Fun….. x 12
Watercolors, bold free…. and that lovely Cobalt Teal Blue! This just reminds me of the sea…… leading us to
The Sea, palette knife acrylics fingers and hands. Such Fun!
Pure thick slathered on acrylic paints. Really for no other purpose than it just seemed right to do so! Hints of teal peek out from midst the scarlet, here and there. Phalo green enters the picture but not as a drama queen, more of a guest appearance.
I liked her subtleness. Subtle….Yugen.….. an element of Wabi Sabi.
You can find more on this in my 7 Days of Zen series. All 7 posts are quite informative explaining about zen, Wabi Sabi, the Asian concept of finding beauty: in the imperfect, impermanent, the unfinished.
My best series I think so far!
Channels The Tide Change
Love the organic flow of this “pouring” painting done in acrylics.
Soft muted orange and blue, a favorite pairing of mine.
This seems to be popular with a lot of people. What I like about it is the random abstracted pattern of the melting snow. That. Is my fav part.
Pastels over watercolors. A painting, ‘not yet resolved’ went on to become something special.
It was awhile before I figured out just what needed to be done.
But the very long, wait was worth it.
Put your paintings away, in a “Later Box” and bring them out when You, are ready.
#7 Influenced by Matisse
#8 Influenced by Matisse
Both are unique. Both are most assuredly influenced by my love of Matisse and Color.
Fire and Flame petals with cobalt teal and ultramarine vases.
I certainly could not resist the color lure the arrangement offered.
Blues and Oranges. Yum.
Abstract acrylic cobalt teal blue with orange accents. Begun as a free spirited monoprint using strings to curl and move throughout the image. It could be a pond, or undersea coral, or florals… or whatever really.
It doesn’t matter the what. What makes this work, is that inner response we have towards it.
Shadows across the Land – watercolor, acrylic in a creative expressive imaginative approach.
Who. Would have thought to portray the sunset quite this way?
No gentleness to it. But rough and abrupt. The land is deep in shadow.
in a different way…… is a thing I enjoy.
I’m not a fan of painting things that we all have seen a 1000 times before. There needs to be Some New story, some new mood, message to show or tell the audience. That is my goal, at any rate. Sometimes I win, sometimes I learn.
This acrylic painting tells it like it is.
Hot, dry and barren. Beautifully rough and rugged. Solitary out there, in the Outback. Ancient land with every rise, every stone worn by blasting sun and winds.
But still, it is Beautiful.
Hope you have enjoyed my Gallery of 12 “Color Moments” this Saturday.
Most of the images were from a couple years ago. Some were, New, to you.
But They each represent a unique moment.
Where I’ve attempted to express in color what I’ve felt and seen.
