New Paintings

The last days of Jane Spakowsky's challenge turned into a little series for me, which I think is still continuing. It's been interesting limiting the colors I'm using (two colors plus black and white) and just allowing the intuitive part of my brain to guide me.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Ours was busy with friends, cooking and art - a great combination!

Wishing you a wonderful start to the week and that, wherever you are, it is warmer than in Savannah this morning...

  5. Wow these are fantastic! So many people have difficulty doing abstract painting but you've really nailed it. Using your intuitive side of the brain is the way to go but not always easy. I say this because yesterday I was struggling with what colours to use and then once I switched to my intuitive brain it started to flow at last! Great work Silke.xx

  6. Die Bilder gefallen mir, vor allem die stilisierten Schwalben, sind doch welche, oder interpretiere ich das nur so? *smile*

  7. An interesting set. I especially liked flight. I did something similar in pastels one time.
