Today is a rare opportunity to play in the studio, without time constraints or deadlines. It will be the last time in the Studio for a week since our Road Trip to the Central Coast starts Monday bright and early. My studio will be plein air on the coast. Looking forward to it.
Meanwhile, today I decide to go abstract, play with colors and see what happens. First off the easel is this piece. So full of energy, very alive. I can always tell my mood from my paintings. Today’s start is expectations of fun, excitement and freedom. I guess I need this upcoming road trip badly.
Using three main colors and their variations created the cohesiveness of the chaotic strokes. Black gave it drama. I love mark making and this is pure mark making. No thought as to what it should become, it definitely is telling a story. Going back to my roots as a child growing up on the water. My happiest places are near the water, and on Monday I will be heading for the Pacific and that’s one large body of water.
Follow me on this fun adventure, for I will be doing some plein air painting on the coast.
