Red Earth


This painting was done in pauses with a different idea in mind. As it rested on my easel while the week got busy for me, I lost the idea I had at the beginning and I started seeing it as a finished painting. I might decide later on that it is not finished and continue to work on it but in the meantime I'll just post it.

Mary,

Well, another WOW!! I love this and I hate that I sound repetitive. Sometimes when I am working I will find a painting is finished before my idea of it is finished. The red is incredibly strong, and it has its place in the title, but the blue is what really gets me.

Don't you hate when that happens? (ie. you forgot your original idea?) I have 2 half finished ones sitting on my easel right now...they've been there since January! I need to over paint or something.

This one looks finished to me. It is very strong as gramercy wrote.

Thank you Robin, Cynthia and Paula! I think since I had to leave for several days it grew on me and I completely forgot what I was going to do, intially. I'm going to write down my ideas from now on.:)

Whatever it was that you wanted to do it surely couldn't have turned out more beautiful than this! I love it.

Thank you, Lesley! I hope I can remember what the other idea was. :)

This is superb - great balance and dimension to this.
