twin halves

Lately I have been studying the relationships between trees and spaces. I look at groupings of tree and see people, family and friends in particular. In my past field and tree paintings they all began with a relationship between trees- hot mamas, twisted sisters, two sisters, etc. This time I was thinking about my friend Domi and her twin, Laura.  It inspired me to make a painting with two equal but very different halves. We as painters know you should never divide the canvas in half. Still, I did. The colors on each half are different but related. One side can not fully exist without the other side's presence. Twins are special.

I love how artists can somehow break the rules with successful paintings as this. Great color as always Loriann.
