Henry Ward Beecher
Painting with the season seems to suit me. One of my challenges this summer is to incorporate a bolder color scheme into my work....just to push my comfort zone. I am a unadulterated neutral-lover. Loud colors scare me. This morning while leafing through a fashion magazine, I came across a multi-paged article on bold color-blocked garments. I shuddered. "Sun Queen" is fresh off the easel. I am not certain I am satisfied yet. But the colors are bolder than I can recall using before. The power of the sunflower seems to demand it.
