the diva and her role
When I left the house this morning I was thinking about vibration and its connection to neutrals. An entire piece can't vibrate. You have to choose. I know I have spoken before about the diva of the painting, that is where the action happens. The colors may create a vibration there. It can be tiring if it vibrates everywhere. The diva needs back up players- neutrals. There can be a couple other supporting roles but they only lead to the diva so that she can shine. Can you spot my diva and the two supporting actors?
On another note I have gone full circle. For the past two years I have explored surface. I have returned to marble dust covered board and thick watercolor (almost handled like oil) with pastel on top. More about that another time.
PS This is one of my favorites ...in a long time.
