New Directions?

March 11, 2014: Today I just kept layering paint on a small canvas board (poor thing!). I enjoyed painting tulips recently, so thought I'd buy and try looking at a sunflower. My interest in observing the sunflower lasted about 5 minutes before I was abstracting and seeing interesting things, and I just kept going. I am reminded of the book "The Interaction of Color" by Itten. Color is so relative to what is next to it. It's amazing to watch and get absorbed by the changes. Each layer creates a new interaction and look.

I am also reminded of a palette knife painting my mother did in probably the 1960's. We grew up with that painting on a wall...so thick!
