Landscape with Effervescence
Originally uploaded by colormuse
This summer I tested myself to paint a landscape. The first sketch had possibilities, then I worked on it again and the life went out of it. In December I studied it and had a couple of inspirational thoughts but didn't have the time....a couple of days ago I worked on it by making dots to enliven it, to break it out of the not working place, to abstract the landscape. Then i intensified the outlines, thinking I would go back in to paint more, but now I rather like it in a very funny sort of way, so I am leaving it be for a pause to reflect on the next step....hmmmm
Word of the day was community....you are my community in these bitterly cold January days, so I am sharing this with you.
