It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here! I’m excited to have family come and celebrate the joy of Christ’s coming – share special times together, eat, drink, laugh, reminisce, etc…… I don’t expect I’ll have much time to paint over the holidays, but some of the memories we create will inspire new works in the year ahead.
My latest series has been a bit of a whirlwind……. the coming together of some very deep seeking that has almost caught me by surprise. You know those times where you start to wonder if you are spinning in circles without any real results? Those discouraging, looooong seasons of struggle and perseverance that all of a sudden pay off? Well, dare I say I am at the reaping end of all that sowing. For now anyways —- just like the world we live in has ever changing seasons, so do we artists (or at least this one does).
These are a few of the pieces I’ve been working on. A new thing for me is working with a very limited palette. I’ve discovered that the colours that I can mix from having just a few on my palette are very intriguing and rich! There is also a beautiful harmony that comes from working with a limited palette.
