I was in the studio a lot this past week! Finishing this painting in 2 days. It came together so easily and almost seemed to be painting itself...well almost. I love it when that happens, it is as if the painting is telling me what it needs in each layer. I am thrilled to be getting back into the studio after a few weeks off for travel, with a mind that is bursting with ideas that have been percolating. In all 4 paintings that I've been working on since Santa Fe the blue of that sky (its there!) and the brown earth are working themselves in as the dominant color schemes. From vision to thought to canvas.
