acrylic on painted paper
by Judith F Lochbrunner
(6 by 12 inches)
This small work may actually be a bit unwelcome by most. The tree branches which have been bare since the middle of last November will soon show signs of new spring growth. The countdown until spring has begun in earnest and it is only a few weeks away. And no one may be interested in looking at bare branches at this date in late winter.
Beginning an artwork with painted papers is a good way to find and develop some exciting color combinations. Painting the negative (or in-between) spaces brings out that color combination and creates beautiful and unexpected shapes.
I'm hoping that the colors and shapes will draw in the viewer and the beauty of bare branches will generate a positive response even now.
This work will be delivered to Goose Creek Studio and will be on display for 2nd Friday (March 13) in Centertown Bedford (VA). Plan to come and see all that the galleries have to offer.
