Cold, windy and rainy...
It was a great day to stay inside and paint!
The result is another in the veil series... I love it when there is actually atmosphere. A gauzy effect rarely seen here in dry as a bone Colorado. The raindrops were adhering to the studio's north facing windows, creating a stipple effect against the low hanging overcast skies and the spring green and pastels of the newly leafing and flowering thees. When I was at the atelier in Boston, we worked strictly under north light. No artificial lighting was allowed. It was so overcast some days, we weren't able to work. Days like this make me feel very inner directed. And sometimes what's on the inside... just wants to come out! So, I give you: Veil Squares, 12x12 acrylic on canvas sheet. Available for $200.
At left is the work in progress. I was inspired by the atmosphere outside to double and triple glaze the 'veil' to create a more floaty effect, giving the squares a less precise whereabouts. Kind of like the 'truths' coming out of Washington, DC these days.
