My Mental Vacation
This week the public schools are off for spring break. New England public schools always take the week of Patriots Day off (a New England only holiday), and I decided to take a mental vacation with my paints.
I used my last sheet of jumbo size watercolor paper and fortunately I can use a frame I recently purchased specifically for this size work. I had done an abstract Treescape in January thinking it would be a new art direction and decided to frame it. Actually, it led me into the chakra series of abstract paintings I just completed. What I don't like is the lack of structure in this first treescape piece and the "Sea of Clouds" brings to me the warm glow of sunrise. Isn't it terrible how fickle I am - my favorite painting is usually the one I just finished.
