Last, but certainly not least, is this beauty! I actually did this piece a few weeks back, then put it aside as I wasn’t sure it was finished.
Funny thing about that. Sometimes you put a piece aside and you’re not really sure why. With this one, I found myself staring into it and getting taken away, but it seemed too simple, too plain almost. What I realize now, is that quiet isn’t necessarily lacking. So much of my work has a lot of color and movement to it and this one felt like it wanted to stay subtle. Almost shy in a way.
I applied layers of blue + violet + silver which makes the depth come through in the top of the painting and then the greens + yellows draw you into the play on light.
This piece has an immediate calming effect on me… And let’s face it, we could all use a bit of CALM right now… am I right?
