I no longer think these new paintings are being delivered by pixies, elves, friendly spirits or anything/one else. They’re mine.

For my next number…I’m working on a piece with a similar design, but instead of using color, I’m working with neutrals. So far, so good with the grays and browns and white which are, after all, colors too. It’s a change, but even a color animal needs a breather now and then. Stay tuned.
My self-education continues, and the book I keep closest at hand is Simon Jennings’ Artist’s Color Manual. The book was published in 2003 and is a wondrous compilation of the history and technical qualities of color together with a virtual catalog of possibilities.
This color animal recommends it.

Micah – take the plunge! Play and have fun…I don’t mean there’s not work involved, but that the line between work and fun is really blurred when it comes to your art! Let me know what happens…
And thanks to you for such a lovely comment. Molly
I don’t know a whole bunch about art but I’ve always been drawn to galleries, paintings and color
you are really onto something with these – I see evolution and flowers growing exuberantly towards the sun in each image you have shared – thank you dear poet/artist
Amazing work!! I keep trying to persuade myself to paint, and to work with different types of material. I think I just need to take the plunge and do it. Looking at your work definitely helps.
