Abstract Still life Flowers
My latest is this abstract still life flowers in a vase by the window. A lesson on giving few details while working on color and composition. There’s a painting beneath it that I wasn’t entirely thrilled with, but loved all the texture already there. Like so many paintings, there are ALWAYS a few favorite parts where the colors just sing off the canvas. This was one of them! So I kept the parts I loved and did some negative shape painting – keeping only the good stuff.
Obviously this is really loose and was a challenge to give just enough detail while letting the viewer put in the rest. I think there’s a saying “keep what you want and leave the rest” or something like that… Well that’s what is done here.
Finally back in the studio FULL TIME after a long summer of business and marketing classes and hanging a local show. PLUS I started offering classes locally in my studio and all of this has me pretty busy. I love what I’m doing, just a little tired at times, but it’s better than the alternative!
Been feeling VERY inspired lately, I have a lot of ideas and sketches that are begging to be brought to life. And now, finally, it looks like I’ll get the time to do them! So stay tuned!
