I completed a small, whimsical painting tonight: I call it The Good Life.
They are saying that plants have a lot more feelings and sophisticated survival structures than we have previously realized. I think they were even saying eating a plant could be compared to eating an animal...so what are we supposed to eat?
Anyway, I felt like a limited palette. Only blue and white. The blue being my favorite blue: phthalocyanine blue (phthalo for short). Add some white and you have some beautiful color...I did put a little orange-red on the lips.
The painting is small. But it started with a rock. I thought, "This might be a good painting." And so it went.
