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

New paintings birthed this year
Feels so good to be painting again! I run away from home, work, and the cold to find a world of paint in my studio and it is satisfying. I started the above painting a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes it is hard to reenter a painting which has some positive to it for fear of erasing the positive. This one had a second wind and I'm glad for its direction; at this point I call it "Under the Bridge", 24x30, and I am getting it ready to hand in a group show in Hardwick with my art group. I am giving it more air and that all feels lighter.
Small painting which has been moving along, though the colors which were first laid upon the canvas, 9x12, remain true, just embelished with depth. I am surprised how much the brown dot shows in the photo...perhaps too much. I am always glad to see these here on the blog because it gives me a different viewing angle.
Very cold here in Vermont; temperatures didn't even make 0 today. I warmed in the yoga room this morning and now I'm going off to Thai Chi, all at the Senior Center; there are some advantages to being a senior and I am ready to claim them.
