Strawberries, Shortcake and Cream


This was a sunny day color scheme. I absolutely loved that coral red! In fact I couldn't restrain myself with it. The whole first layer of the painting was that red. It took a bit of self control to let the mood I wanted get through. Somehow lots and lots of red can feel less "red" than a little bit of red. I wanted the eye to be craving more...

The gray days and thunderstorms have been influencing my pallette in other works in progress.

This may stay like this, at least for a good while. I'm not sure if I'm going to put the three squares on it under the trees or not.

I want to do a few more this size (16x20") in bright colors. Today I was musing about orange and hot pink, but so far it's still musing.

Here's a bit more red, courtesy of the back yard, in case like me you're hungry for more.



Have a great weekend!!
