Light without dark…

Here is my latest piece.   I started it and then put it down for a week because I was stuck.

It started out so strong and there was so much different between the colors in the distance and the white of the paper… but what to put there.  I always like doing the background.   The objects are simple and it leaves a lot to the viewer’s imagination.  

Such a expanse of pristine white…I hate to spoil it.

This is where it say for a week.   Me afraid to mess it up.   The vibrant tones playing against the whiteness…most nights just before, or maybe after falling asleep my brain would startle me to wakefulness with a “what about this?!?” moment but in the light of day I would fret over the idea and dismiss it.   This morning I decided that I needed some bare trees in the midground so I added them during my lunch hour (working from home).

Oh,  I like this,  they feel very nice.

This evening I decided to tackle the foreground.  I feared that I would use up all the white and lose those wonderful whites but I think I managed it.

Finished

What do you think?  I think I’ll do some more in this series.

Do art.
