Excited

This one was once again inspired by the book “Serendipity Quilts” by Susan Carlson mentioned in yesterday’s post. Along with the sun, she included a moon pattern, which looks like this:

These sun and moon patterns just seem to call my name!  In my art journal, I used a ramekin for the outer circle, and freehanded the rest of the design. I added the waves because, to me, the moon and waves are just a natural match.

I feel like they gel so well in this little painting. Used my Cotman travel palette to add the color.   This was a very relaxing end of the day wind-down, and I was pretty pleased with the result.  I’d like to come up with my own sun and moon portraits/profiles, and I’m really looking forward to the prospect!    It’s all new territory for me, but what isn’t?   Onward!

Can’t believe Wednesday’s already here!   Preseason starts tomorrow people!   (Well, I guess it’s already begun.)   It’s my annual signal that Fall has boarded the plane and is taxiing down the runway!   Let’s do the Autumn dance!   *cue the music*

  1. Love the simplicity of the design and how you painted it, Laura! So dreamy! Google “Green Man” for ideas using leaves. I took a class online that used the negative painting technique in Gouache for creating the “Wood Wife” – Green Man’s wife. I have yet to try it! Thank you for the inspiration! ((((Laura)))). 💛💙💜💚
