Leaves, new color way

This experimenting I’ve been doing these days with leaves is fun.  As much as it is about the shapes of the leaves, negative space and wet-in-wet, it’s also about color combinations.  This one started as orange and blue leaves first, and I added the alizarin crimson and yellow ones as I developed it.  It’s become about the primaries plus one secondary.  Hmmm!  

This piece is now for sale via my shop on Etsy.  I have a pre-Christmas special on both my Etsy Shops to celebrate Small Business Saturday through Cyber Monday, November 24th – 26th, 20% off everything in my shops.  Just use the coupon code Thanksgiving12 during the checkout process.   For my paintings, notecards and reproductions, go to RosoffArtworks.  My silk scarves are available in BloomingSilks.

Its 2012 ~ Happy New Year

To escort out 2o11, this is the last piece I finished last year.  It’s back to one of my ‘true north’ concepts, the orange flower on the rich blue background, this one using my patterned background from my Tapestri series.

I’ve been away from my blog for a little bit.  Christmas-time was busy, between filling orders, holiday events, rearranging my home a little, and enjoying the lights, decorations and general cheerfulness the holidays bring.  I always love watching the lights go up on people’s houses.  My new next door neighbors decorated their front garden with lights which were so fun to look at as I arrived home in the dark.

Its always a time of reorganizing and reassessing for me, to see where I want to go in the coming year.  We’re having summer weather here (84° today!) which has actually helped my mind set post-holiday blues!  So although the Christmas lights are mostly down and the mail once again is mainly bills and junk, (I love old-fashioned mail!) I’ve got new ideas for paintings, new ideas for silk scarves, and new watercolor workshops on calendar.

Thanks to all of you who keep coming and checking in with me, I appreciate it!
