Regardless of the weather, I have two very happy, warm places to transport you to. I have missed painting so much (it’s been about two months since I’ve painted in oils due to our move) that these two felt a like little refreshing therapy for my painter’s soul.
“Summer’s End” is the greener, fresher looking painting (above in this photo), “Little Fields of Gold” is the painting with yellow and golden fields in the foreground. I love the tiny size! These little guys measure 4×4 inches, which, for some reason, allows me to get out of my head and just paint. I had fun playing around with the color pallet; warm teal, gold, blue, gray… I also used the brush strokes and the thickness of the paint (“impasto”) to add character, visual direction, and a feeling of lovely texture to these babies.
