I've painted this winter scene of Lake Austin before. This time, I used my new abstracted approach working with just a palette knife. Very interesting editing out what seems unimportant and focusing simply on shape, color, composition and value. So much fun!!!
When I began abstracts, something that emerged after simplifying my landscapes, I decided I should paint the original dream colors. I entitled the painting Inspired Dream posted below. It was exhilarating to paint! I started using the palette knife, painting wildly and energetically. Was so much fun! I was in the ZONE. Clearly a part of me or my angelic/light being guides knew I would one day be painting abstracts.
So I asked my angels for artistic inspiration to continue this series I jokingly refer to as "Rothko on steroids." I dreamed this new color combo (top image), brilliant teal surrounded by orange that darkened to a deep taupe and then dark brown around the edges. Emerald green is the color of archangel Raphael who is known as a healer, and bronze is the color of archangel Gabriel, known for inspiring artists. Woohoo. LOVE being in sync with the universe.
I recently did commission for my dear friend Anne Marie Palmer. Well, I say recently. I started on it many months back with this study/sketch posted last January. After she approved the sketch, I took my time with the larger piece. SO grateful she wasn't in a hurry. I delivered this to her about two months ago. Finally posting the work - unframed and with the frame she chose. Pastel is a wonderful medium. Must do more. I am open to more commissions, too! :-) Just contact me here.

This is a further-abstracted version of a painting I did two years ago - posted below. This new one is smaller and has less detail. Yet all the juicy color and streamlined detail is all the info you need I think. I am loving working with bold brush strokes and sometimes just the palette knife. No palette knife here - all flats and brights. More to come!
