Aureate


Aureate
Acrylic 17" x 14" on heavy paper
Available


Although this painting was completed awhile back, I am just realizing that I have never blog posted it.   It is a painting that completely changed it's course in order to bring it to that point of….done,done.  I can't remember now exactly what it was, nor did I photograph.  I believe that it was an attempt at a floral painting with lots of pinks, purple and bright colors.  Just wasn't working and so I began covering it with neutral colors, allowing some of the pink to show through, adding the burnt oranges and embellishing with golds.  I guess you could say this paintings story is…."If all else fails, try, try again"!
