I have taken a long hiatus from making art (all summer!) but last night made an opportunity to pick up a paint brush. I had bought a (9) pack of 8x10 canvases at Walmart last week, with the thought that I would paint a visual quilt of them and include my kids in the project. Over the summer I painted the walls in my living room "lightening bug butt YELLOW" (a very cool yellow, not sunny warm), so I am purposely painting (and commissioning!) art that pops on that color.
I wish you could see the true colors of this first canvas-- the pinks are not lavender and red, but the color of cotton candy and salt water taffy. I can only do so much with color correction. ha!
And doesn't everyone have a jar of sequins in their paint box?
(Stuck onto the canvas while the paint was still wet.)
I have put away the browns and blacks and vow to paint in only vibrant colors.
My house is starting to reflect that and my life is also.
This is a new day and I'm dreaming in color!
