Orange You Gonna Ask?


sold

Last week I had a lot of trouble with compositions. That's why I've been posting some old work. Nothing was seeming to gel and I was getting more and more frustrated. It happens! I have learned to accept it as part of the process, though the acceptance comes and goes too. : ) Anyway, I did this painting as I was clawing my way back out of the valley of doom. It seems a little floaty to me, but there is a simplicity to it that I like.

The Valley of Doom, we all know it, glad to see you made it through safely this time. If you didn't have some flops occasionally we'd all hate you and think you were a painting robot sent here to make everyone else feel bad;)))))

Love love love the purple! Thanks for the encouragement. I just painted one that came out looking like a cheap Christmas card. Bleahh!

I love this one, Carol! I think I am drawn to simplicity as well--maybe because I have so much clutter in my life?? Anyway, love the colors too. Beautiful, as always!

Have been visiting the Valley of Doom myself, lately - but looks like you got your mojo back! Be well, friend...

I don't think it is floaty. Love the greens, and the composition.
