Cleaning off the Palette and Spring is Finally Here!

After I finished the 5 small paintings titled ‘Prairie Red’ I still had some paint on my palette. So like many of you I grabbed another piece of paper and ‘used’ up the remainder. I came back to it yesterday and added some collage and continued painting. I don’t know if it is because spring is finally here, but I seem to have a new energy for exploring and experimenting with my painting. My father and my husband both worked in the oil and gas industry and I have a background in agriculture. So you are probably wondering what that has to do with painting? Well, when I look at a landscape I am not just thinking about what I can see, but what I can’t. Soil profiles, rock structures, root systems – ‘what lies beneath’ – all food for fodder.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and wishing you a day filled with inspiration!
