Today was a good day in the studio. My heart made a flutter when I completed this new work and can finally say, after 8 years, that I have created an interesting painting. So, what is so special about this work and why do I think the work is interesting? It is the first painting that speaks to me. I love the interesting colors. I also like the way the radiating circular images create an intriguing centre of interest. Also, the green olive soft background gives the middle section a sense of depth and mystery. I like the way the radiating circular shapes sit solidly on each side of the centre panel. Then the wall like orange area on the left side holds up the centre because the color of beige and orange works well with the olive green. The right side yellow/white and the hint of that orange line balance the right side and stands luscious against the center area. The surface quality suggests whipped cream. It is finished and I do not see anything that I would change in the work. So, the next step is to take the same image and rework in again. Do different sizes and see what happens. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope that this is not an anomaly and that I can create another one that I am happy with.
