I started this painting on Monday night with the Abstract group - it was a disaster. I was not feeling great and had no energy and my painting showed this. I wanted to get back to it right away just to prove I hadn't lost my touch - so yesterday morning I repainted most of what I had done the night before and here is the result - it is called Caravan and is acrylic 30X24 on canvas. I have been thinking lately about my current color choices and how my location affects my use of color. When I was in PA this summer it was so much green, grey and blue and that was the colors I used to paint. Now I am back in NJ and it is fall and the color is glorious - I am painting in orange, golden yellow, pinks, light blue and well much brighter, lighter colors. My paintings feel much happier and are so much more colorful. I am liking this change and I think it is an improvement - I wonder what winter will bring?
