Trade Blanket - The Red Lady


The day had come to an end, horses were brushed and fed. I just had time to clean my painting palette and head for the house to make dinner. There was a pile of red paint on the palette that just could not be left to dry. I told myself I would just start a painting by adding a thin layer of background color. Right! One more color of paint went on and then another until "Trade Blanket - The Red Lady" appeared. This painting was totally spontaneous and came from the energy from the colorful palette. I love those moments in the studio when total freedom of the moment leads me on to make, "A Painting Day". Dinner ended up being omelets and toast!

Une très jolie publication... J'aime la manière que vous parlez du plaisir que vous ressentez à peindre... C'est si important de peindre avec son ressenti... En l'occurrence dans cette dernière peinture toute votre énergie s'étale sur la toile. Bravo ! Elle est puissante...
Je vous fais de gros bisous
