Happy Summer Solstice!!!
I truly hope you have a chance to make the most of this time of year. Here in the studio, I'm feeling the light. My above painting, "An Eye for Color," is a luminous abstract of boldly colored organic forms and gestural line creating a lively sense of space. Its rich palette of bold brights—sky blue, greens, yellows, reds— is striking and healing.
This past week, a new mixed media series began to emerge and so far, it's also a festival of color, but in in oil, acrylic, and graphite on wood and canvas. It's fun to see where each of these explorations lead. Stay tuned to see what comes next. At this point, your guess is as good as mine!
Outside the studio, an unusually dry spring and early summer has drought conditions continuing into late June. Even the garden weeds seem to be keeping themselves in check. The good news is no mosquitoes.
How are things where you live?
Enjoy these longest days of summer, my friends!
