Red Surf

Not a sunset or a statement about the Gulf oil spill. I was just craving red. I also needed a break from the large complicated landscape I`m working on. It sounds melodramatic, but each session with these big pieces is like entering an arena. Most of the time, eventually, I arrive at a resolution and a decent painting. But there is a lot of chaos getting there.

When I saw this on my sidebar, I had to pop over and see what all the red was about - since it's mostly cool blues and greens I find here. I like this - a lot of energy and power in it already!

No one "does red" better than you!

Wonderful to go with feelings to different areas... This painting of yours takes me back to Southern Utah red desert rocks
