New Work: The Landscape
Here's a new painting I just completed for the open studio event, along with several larger pieces with the same color fields. As I was working on the first one, I applied paint directly to the canvas, then added a bit of this, a bit of that. Luscious effects happened. I like this! By going with the flow, so to speak, I found that something happened: my mind was free, I wasn't worried about the finished piece, and magic happened. These are deceptively simple, yet I have found over the years that less says more. Sometimes there's too much information going on in our lives, and it's time to take a step back to simple and beautiful.
