The value of waiting....

This is a piece that I started many months ago. It wasn't going well...the colors were more blues and violets and it just wasn't working. The painting didn't speak to me. Then a few weeks ago I decided to just attack it in a whole new way, simply responding to the marks that were there with new marks, shapes and a whole new pallette—no real intention. There is a lot of paint on that canvas now, but it takes me to an imaginary place that I would love.

  1. Wow! Brilliant use of pure color!

  2. WoW!!!! What a beautiful painting. The colors are so rich. This is what I call a Calgon painting....take me away.

  3. Thank you Casey and Sue. I haven't been to my blog in months and just noticed your comments. I know, a delinquent blogger. Shameful.
