• The Beauty Of A Day (IV)

    12" x 12"/30 x 30 cm

    Gouache and mixed media on panel

     

    Fourth in this series exploring the vertical upright and color canopy. I'm not painting a tree or bouquet, though I think about the light in leaves and petals. I'm exploring the upright shape with canopy. I don't quite know what I'm doing here. But it's usually best that way. The colors and forms will reveal their message to me at some point. For now, I am bumbling along while becoming reacquainted with gouache, which I haven't painted with in....38 years. I find the result of my efforts pleasing. I hope you enjoy looking at them too.
