I mentioned a new series in one of my posts last week and this the first painting in the series.
I painted this card for my brother, David, and it reminded me of a landscape even though that was not my original intent. I got to thinking that it may be interesting to paint a series of landscapes using the same technique--especially since one of my goals is to simplify my paintings. I wanted to create something very simple and yet still identifiable. Something that still evokes a thought, feeling or memory without much detail. This is the first painting in the series:
The paper is 9x12 inches. I painted them all with a really wide border. The painting itself is 5.25x8 inches.
