DP12 "CONEFLOWER PATTERNS"
oil on hardboard
available at Weems Gallery Uptown
After painting a linear church, I needed to bust loose with
something a little more wild and free. Like a field of coneflowers!
I'm going to be painting a lot of Christmas scenes in the coming days,
so I will probably go crazy with this kind of painting at least once a week.
Maybe call it my "Friday Diversion."
This kind of painting is wonderful because it's so full of texture.
It looks like a meadow of coneflowers from a distance - come up closer
and all you see are little color notes and patterns.
It's kind of cold and gloomy outside today and I have errands to run and
doctor's appointments, so I probably won't be doing any painting until
