I took the day to spend in my Art Studio and redid a painting I did last year. Purple was my favorite color for many years and I always put it in paintings. I took the purple out of this one, replaced it with my new neutral – Gray. I defined the flowers a little more with oil crayons and feel the result is much more successful. It really seems to pop!
While I was in the studio, I wanted to paint something new for my entry, as I had repainted the wall and redid the wood. Originally it was fence wood, unpainted with purple on the wall. The new look is shown below, so I think my new painting will be perfect. I had one I was going to use that I was showing at Interiors of Edmonds, but when I called to pick it up for a photo shoot, I found out it had been sold.
So I think this new 30″ x 40″ will work well.
Sometimes knowing you have something coming gets the creativity flowing. Our beach home is going to be featured in West Sound Home and Garden magazine this summer, so I wanted something fun to be on the entry wall. By jove, I think I got it.
