A dear friend of mine saw the DREAMS TAKE FLIGHT painting and asked if she could get something made to fit her office space. At first, I was just a little reluctant only because I knew it would be more difficult to work on such a smaller scale. It was good practice, especially since I just bought some new oils to paint plein air. More on that later…
Going from large to small
This one was a challenge for me, but I love the way it came out – those colors! SO in love with this color palette, even though it’s not for everyone. Working with them just makes you feel so joyful. Some days it’s easier for me to deal with the day to day chaos here in America, if I immerse myself in these happy colors.
Spring is near!
I feel spring right around the corner, even as this polar vortex is gripping half the country. Can’t wait for warmer temps, butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies and bees to make their way back here again. Just seeing the bulbs here in Sonoma County, CA. pop-up out of the ground, has me ready for the change in season.
Even though I’m in love with this current color palette I have been working behind the scenes with new color combinations. You know what – so far they have SUCKED. Yep, I’m still trying to get a palette together that I like working with that gives me a LIFT! But there will be new colors coming out soon.
Hope you all are doing good, keeping warm, being creative, enjoying the silence, and reveling in just BE-ING.
