I began adding color! I really don't like adding the colors red and green together. It just makes brown mud if you're not careful. But this painting has to have both colors so the challenge will be making that work.
I was thinking about those two colors last night (red and green). I do not think they work together. I don't think they are pleasing to look at together either. But how approproate for this painting. I don't like this disease either. The patient is a beautiful person just as either color alone is. But as with this awful disease when these two colors mix together the color is not as pretty any more either.
Enjoy each other, as long as you have them. You just never know what's going to happen tomorrow.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
