Spring Sky

Painting takes on the shape of space. Chaos or calm, prosperous or penurious. The color of mood. Powerful reds, reflective yellows, serene greens and breathing blues.

Clothing chosen in the morning are the colors most often used through the day. Is body cover inspired by mood or convenience. And which of these will appear on the palette or monitor.

Are autumn paintings connected to a silent buried yearning and the wild spring shades a bursting forth from hibernation. Which is the influence, which is the outcome.

Do you know?

An April Sketch

This casual sketch was made on the Bamboo Fun Tablet with Adobe Photoshop Elements, resized in Irfanview and framed in FrameFun.

I still don't have the hang of free hand drawing but neither have I given up... Actually, I'm not much of a drawing person. I just feel my way along with a pencil, brush or stylus without much direction and with a certain detachment and commitment!

The amount of enjoyment available through the computer never fails to astound me.
