|Spring Storm. Mixed Media.|
Approximately 22 x 30 inches.
Last week, on the way home from the grocery store, a huge storm front came in from the east. (Now that I think about it--that's unusual, they usually come from the west.) The trees were just barely starting to leaf out and were that particular vibrant first yellow-green, and juxtaposed against the storm looked pretty amazing.
Now you're probably wondering what the painting above has to do with that--well it started as that storm front, and then took off on its own adventure. Apparently, my hand doesn't always listen to my brain. This piece started as a straight up watercolor, then I added some crayon, then some acrylic, more crayon, and finally, I borrowed some opaque watercolors from Barb Smucker for a final layer. I'm still thinking about it. I think I will add it to my dark and dense group of paintings.
