Sail Away Painting
Just finished this painting for a friend as a housewarming gift. Though I like to paint with vibrant colors, I know she likes pastels. It was hard to tone it down 🙂
I also love to paint in abstract form, while she prefers more representational work. So it was hard for me to put in details when I wanted desperately to leave them out…I ended up using a palette knife for some of it which was very freeing. Years ago I would have spent a month or longer painting this and trying to get all the details. Now, years later it’s hard to put them in! I have to say though the lighter colors (less chroma) is a nice change of pace… Who knows, this could be the start of something new!
Have a great week ahead.
Sending lots of love and light your way…
