Backyard gatherings

Pansie Posers, 6 x 6

As I've said before, I'm not a fan of panting flowers.  I can get lost in them.  Sometimes that's good--painting every blossom and leaf leads to an effect I don't much enjoy--a painting where nothing is left to the imagination.  Our eyes and minds know to interpret what isn't there if the artist gives us just enough information.  Hopefully, I've done that here!

Gestalt allows the mind to create within the space not used the beauty that it desires.

Enjoyed the chat!

Hi Julie,

I absolutely love how you paint -- so loose and
free. Wonderful!

Take care,

Barbara (I found you through Laurel Daniel's blog -- another amazing painter).

Thanks, Barbara! You're right about Laurel--she is a fabulous painter and an equally wonderful mentor and friend. I appreciate your feedback!!
