Dappled

Putting away the blue paint and using only warm colors (at first) really changed the character of the piece. Yes, this reminds me of my quilts, which is what I was attempting. In fact I painted some papers just for this composition. Altho it is difficult to see in these photos, that square piece on the lower left is metallic gold, which I got in Tokyo, years ago. A little stack of 40 papers, for 200 yen. This is the first time I used any of them.

The harvest for today.
 
 And a collage of coming attractions.
It is soooo much easier to harvest green beans standing up. Love these raised beds!

  2. I love this painting. This is more like I expected your paintings would look like - like your quilts. I was quite surprised that your earlier paintings were in much more muted colours. You're very talented at many artistic pursuits - and gardening too!
