Girlie Things

This little 6"x 8" oil painting is painted on Gessobord.  I have had much time to think and rethink my painting strategy and I am simplifying the number of my strokes and working on lost and found edges.  What I love about this painting are the number of interrelated colors and how they support one another.  I like the active surface.  I have been spending much time looking at the Impressionists and works of contemporary impressionist artists while I was without a computer.  I would say that much of the work I have been doing has been in my mind.  As much as I love color I am also aware that grays help to hold a painting together and make the other colors pop.  In this painting I tried to incorporate warm and cool grays.  Putting all of these things together is challenging.
