"Partners in Pink"
oil on linen on panel, 6" x 8"No chance for plein air work today. Real Estate duties beckon . . . .actually they are screaming! . . . . . . and I have to teach class this evening.
This piece is that little vinegar jar again. It has a beautiful glaze on its surface with all manner of blues, greys and violets. The textures and reflective surface makes for an interesting lighting challenge each time I attempt it. As for the geranium . . . .this time, I wanted to simplify it down to its essence . . . one or two simple strokes of color for each petal, then leave it.
The end result made an interesting abstraction of contrasting sizes from multiple tiny shapes against the larger negative shapes. Just another in the endless string of 'experiments.'
