Painting

We’re being encouraged to open doors into our multidimensional beingness these days and artistic endeavors are a way to get “there”. Keeps the 3D mind at bay at least for a while.

I’m getting more venturesome with my colors… adding sap green to the mixture. Still keeping the palette simple, white, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, oxychrome orange, ultramarine blue and mixtures of same.

Hope you enjoy these…! The one below has been “in progress” for about a week. Sometimes you just have to let a painting sit awhile and let your eyes study it for proportion, skin tones, etc. While it is somewhat an intellectual exercise (knowing the color chart), it is also an intuitive process, basically sensing what “feels” right in terms of composition, color, energy, etc. Anyone who dabbles in art or crafts understands what I’m attempting to express here.
