Primarily Tactile

With a few more tweaks, this will be finished. Besides those primary-leaning colors, which always grab me, I was drawn to the different textures here. The bricks and their old crumbly mortar, the glazed pottery, the tender and flexible lilac blossoms and leaves, and the smooth but sturdy cloth with its creased fold; to me, they beg to be touched.

Back To Work

It has been a while, but I'm back at the drawing board, and enjoying working on this new piece. The almost-primary palette of this still-life is making me happy! And then there's the scent of the lilacs... heavenly. I love May.
