Spring Things

Detail from Shimmering Roses, 36 x 36

Well, I keep painting these white shapes on textured, muted backgrounds (here the "shapes," of course, are roses).  The pattern and movement, the dance of the linear and round forms -- all of those things represent my current challenge.  The weather has been really wonderful and spring-ish here in Atlanta for about 2 weeks... Below is this painting outside on my deck, accented with some slanting sun shadows!  

Now I'm wanting to paint with some COLOR and feel the spring vibe in my work -- so I'm off to the studio to see what develops...


  1. Une peinture pleine de fraîcheur... Une belle douceur pour glorifier l'arrivée du printemps...
    gros bisous

  2. So soft and beautiful. love the values of white.

  3. Love Spring Things! The painting is just soft, shimmery and gorgeous. Love the shifts in the neutrals...and the yummy whites are just so beautiful! Look forward to seeing what you do with some color next. You are a petite pacesetter:):)

  4. Wonderful and delicate colors in this painting..would look great anywhere!
