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.
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
