It's That Limited Palette Again


More of the Same?


This painting was inspired by the aspen trees next to my deck that are so very slowly getting their leaves.  


Hurry Up Spring
48" x 30"
Acrylic on Canvas


It is the restricted palette I have been using, influenced by the drippy, grey, cool weather.  Hence the title of this painting, though a friend did point out that spring is almost over even though the plants don't seem to know that, or didn't until yesterday.   Yesterday the sky was blue and the sun did shine!  Has Summer arrived?
  
Seven Pie Apples
10" x 30"

Seven Pie Apples is a bit of the same palette with the addition of a blue.


Spring Pears
6" x 8"


And these pears are definitely the same palette.


But with the arrival of summer weather I was out on the lake in my rowing shell, working in the garden, and planning paintings with a new and different palette.  Check back soon to see how weather and the change of seasons can influence a painter.
