RACHEL IN THE GARDEN


While going through all my art work in preparation for the upcoming workshop, I came across some paintings I wanted to photograph again, outside, for better color resolution. This one I don't remember photographing before. Every once in a while I like to throw some paint on the paper in a random manner. I think I tried to pour paint on this one but I don't have that technique down very well and the paint does weird things. I decided to put this image on top of the pour. It was a challenge because of the two light spots but I decided it looked like shadow and sunshine in the garden. Definitely lemonade time!

We leave early tomorrow and I am taking the laptop, so I will be able to post as the workshop progresses. Can't wait.

I absolutely love this - I love the dreamy quality to it.

My favorite painting of yours has always been the self-portrait that I saw in Artist's Magazine (? hope that was it - I read a lot of mags) - with all of the squares of your face with different expressions? Something about turning 50 I think. That was one of those paintings I loved enough to show everybody - an "isn't this great?!" type of work.

But this I love even more.

(IMO you should re-think whether you're any good at pouring or not if that's how you achieved it!)

Have a terrific workshop, Myrna. Can't wait to hear all about it.

Angela is right in the last post . . you should rethink the pouring technique . . .it is lovely!

I agree! I don't see the paint doing anything funny at all - it flows and blends and this is a beautiful painting.

This does give a lovely feeling of light and shadow - a beautiful interpretation of your random pour.
