Color affects everything! My work is about color relationships and the energy that color can generate...paintings on silk and on canvas

New Beginnings; Winter Sightings
Hurrah! New year and I found my way to the studio and laid some new paint on a clean palette and began to paint again. I have missed painting so, but when woven scarves and hats are in demand and silk scarves are selling, it is hard to put saleable work aside to explore painting. But I have made enough money to buy a ticket to go visit my mama again and to buy new paints. Hurrah, I say again!
But I also took some time out to retreat into the mountains of Vermont to "hang out" with a couple of friends, almost sisters and the day was glorious but surprisingly cold. My camera still had some juice and my eye was catching some sightings.
We did 4 wheelbarrows of wood for the stoves, but check out the garden gear hanging so fine; I kept noticing it as we waked by and had to lag behind to snap a few shots.
But then we could walk, bundled against the cold, but pleased to be taking it all in.
Snow and shapes; white against neutral
I think I am observing differently this year. All these buildings and vehicles...hmmm...
But maybe it was just the day, and the sun, and the cold; sometimes I couldn't push the button with my gloves on...
Could I really aim my camera toward the 3 of us and capture us together?...almost...!
One last image...the gazebo waiting for a spring or summer day to pull us inside....
