"Ready To Go"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
I spent all morning shipping paintings and thus I did not spend all day in my studio like I had intended. At least I was able to finish this little painting.
A few days ago there was a humorous post on my blog that I always paint "girl boats". As much as I like to use color, it was brought to my attention that I use a lot of pinks, reds and oranges ... also known as "girl colors". So, when I started on this painting this afternoon, I decided to make a conscience effort to paint a "boy boat" painting.
So, I mixed all blues and greens and yellows. A while later I looked at my painting and I think I actually painted yet another "girl boat" painting. It is obvious that I like bright colors (and I live in a house with three sons and my husband so our house lacks "girl colors") so tomorrow I promise ... I will paint a "boy boat painting" with browns and dark colors. Well ... maybe just a tint of orange ... Stay tuned!
