POOL IN FIELD   30" x 30”  July 7, 2013   


Here was another adventure into more brush strokes, the point at which I was no longer afraid of showing the process of painting. There can not be a more quintessential image of summer than the juxtaposition of blue pool water and bright grass.


This eight-stripe painting allowed me to show the alternating color fields of blue and green sufficiently. The exciting part was cross-fertilizing one color onto the other, blue onto green, green onto blue... so the colors were no longer entirely segregated by their stripe and as a result started to create a canvas that could be read as a whole.
