"Look at the colors that play a prominent role in your life right now. What colors surround you most… what colors repeatedly draw you in… what colors symbolize what is going on in your life right now? Choose the two or three colors that most speak to you at this moment, then use this limited palette to create a piece of art this week.
I don't know why I am so addicted to these colors lately: green gold, red and raw sienna. This freeform style I've been pursuing of late is very much from the subconscious so I can't explain how these colors symbolize what is going on in my life right now. When I do a freeform painting I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do - I just start loading my brush up with color and let it flow. The green/gold and the red paints in my watercolor box just pull my water-laden brush to them over and over again. I don't know what this all means. Perhaps I have such a complicated life I am gravitating to simple forms. I gravitate to free-flow, light and airy - and simple. I have a habit to over analyze EVERYTHING - an occupational hazard I'm afraid. So I am deliberately not analyzing this - just going with the flow and seeing where it may take me!
This red gloved lady is rather an odd one. She almost "feels" like she has just sprouted from the earth, bringing her face up to the sunshine. These really come from deep inside - she speaks to something. Exactly what is something I've yet to discover.
