" Women Who Dance" ...

This is a  new collage piece I just completed.  Sometimes I return to the "paper" artforms as a break from those large and intense abstracts.  This one uses hand decorated papers, stencils, acrylics and pastel pencils.  I hope you  enjoy it!

Let's do this again ........

Come with me again on another painting discovery! This should look familiar by now.  Below is a large stretched canvas,  painted white and waiting ......
These are the colors I chose: black, white, nutmeg, gray, lavender and red.  Let's see what comes from that odd selection! 

I began with large areas of the neutral colors ....
 Then I added the red.  No particular plan in place, just moving the colors around...and using some of my tools.
 Again, I reached that point where the entire piece was not making me happy.  It seemed too dark, messy, no focus, no point that excited me when I looked at it.
 Out came the small roller and the white paint.  I painted over most of the canvas, leaving two places that had interest to me .....
Then, I went back in and softened the white with colors....

 Suddenly it came together!  I can look at it, and see many places that are interesting ....and it makes me happy.  I present:
