Moving from Traditional to Abstraction!
"Master of the Day"
I painted this while visiting my parents last week. Mom and I love to paint together, and it's one of the few times that she paints anymore. We had such a great time! I'm teaching in Alexandria, MN tomorrow through Friday, and the workshop is "Starting Traditionally, Moving to Abstraction". One of the first things that I emphasize is to establish the light pathway. There is collage here also, which is my favorite way to paint. The collage inspires me to create similar shapes, and also to continue in that color scheme. Since I was raised on a ranch in Montana, this painting brings back happy memories of my childhood.
