Sorelle Gallery, New Canaan, CT
It started of as a monochromatic idea during a workshop demonstration in VA earlier this year. The end result here is completely different from that first start and subsequent rework, and another rework, and even more reworks.
Finally I began to make some bolder moves by redoing most of the composition and experimenting with a large selection of brighter colors. What a relief to eliminate what wasn't working and move into fresh territory. In this case, an otherworldly forest scene with candy colored trees. That fresh start opened the door to a number of other opportunities but this was a day for color!
