It's been raining here for days, or for eternities, it's hard to tell. This morning has dawned gray and wet and drizzly, and I know that all of this is good for everything that grows, but it's not that good for humans. Everything is starting to smell, inside the house and out, and I am looking forward to sunshine and my litany of complaints about the heat.
I made this painting in my basement studio. I've been trying to push my landscapes more toward abstraction, and with this painting, I believe I took my first step. Broader shapes, fewer colors, richer darks, brighter lights. Painting like I've gone a little blind.
Same deal here as with the following three azalea paintings. If you buy it, I will give 25 percent to the Kinney Azalea Garden, and shipping is on me.
Thanks for reading!
