I love poppies. I have never had luck growing them, so I paint them instead.
I love color. I’m constantly thinking about color. I think about how to make it brighter and more vivid. I think about how to juxtapose it so that it screams or whispers. I think about the emotion that different colors stir. The strange thing about color is that it is an illusion. We construct it in our mind. That kinda freaks me out. I wonder what is really there that I can’t see. I love mystery! Anyway, here is another colorful painting (in my head anyway) of what I imagine to be a crowd of red poppies in a natural amphitheater.
Challenge 1-2018 Let’s Paint New Mexico
I figured I should complete one more painting before the year ends. Just a little painting, but I think it has a big personality. I am loving the purples and oranges in this palette knifeabstraction of purple iris.
Just messing around with a relatively new set of primary colors. Cyan, Magenta and Yellow plus white.
Playing with painting knives and canvas that is too fat for my easel. I do love sunflowers.
More poppies from this week while on the yellow ochre sky kick.
