“Blue Grass Hill”








As I continue on my painting journey, I find that I reflect more on things that I used to just acknowledge. That blue in the deepest purple or red in the greenest leaf. Small color nuances are exciting and changes even more so. I have always enjoyed working on different surfaces and I can say that is still true… only more so. Slick shiny surfaces or woven patterned surfaces. What about the underpainting? Most recently I find the rich glow of gold or black a as they peek through color intriguing. As ever, I paint what I see, only now I seem to see more.
