Yep...still crazy around here, so I'm posting yet
another older painting. 2 more days of moving my
sister, then a garage sale, then hopefully I'll be
able to get back to painting sometime next week.

Although I didn't get a chance to participate in this
weeks DPW Challenge, "The Color Of White", I
thought I would at least post a painting that reflects
the subject. I am bummed at missing this one since
reflecting patterns in shiny objects is sort of my thing.

The blues and oranges sing such a beautiful harmony in this lovely painting, Gwen.

This is beautiful Gwen,

Life does get crazy sometimes. Take it easy, but please get back to painting because you're so good.

Gwen- you didn't miss the challenge! There's no deadline. We anticipate your entry...

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Don't feel too bad at missing the challenge...you will be back painting soon. And yes, you are the Queen of painting objects on patterns.
Hope you found some cool fabrics at your sister's place for next weeks
paintings :-)
Love the blue/orange combo in this one.

Such a soothing blue you captured Gwen! And as Claire, it is so very harmonic.

I'm glad you posted this "older" work as I had not seen it...I really love this! Simple, clean, cool...wonderful feeling of the juiciness in the paint.

Gwen, the pear slices & their reflections were painted very thoughtfully and with such skill.
