Creating a Vibrant Landscape via Poolside
Honestly this was Max's idea to be outside but my angel of a dog gives good guidance. I began with this intensely dramatic yellow that resonates from shoulder to shoulder across my collarbone. Go with it. I feel the wind and sweep purples across the sky. And the blue, my blue, although it is air I am grounded by it, or better said the blue of the sky is comforting like warm potatoes in your belly. The light effects all it touches as seen in the reflection in the water and the glistening grass shards of yellows, golds, and greens. Far off on the horizon are trees on a narrow mass of land. All created in my backyard. Often people who do not make art ask bewildered as to what it is like, this post explores my feelings during an expressionist landscape in progress. If you do make art, doesn't it feel good to do so?
