immediately I started making up scenarios of what this be...
that's a sign it appeals to me
but I cannot let you hear what I heard
lest the men in white coats come to take me away

random thoughts are not always coherent or explainable

like the feeling of action and movement
and turquoise/teals are at the top of my fav colors
and orange

the black works well with this, gives a sense of depth
and mass
and the red is what cannot be identified
is it ketchup?
apples?
pasta sauce?
lipstick?
blood?
valentines?
pieces of Santa's coat?
red velvet cake?

you can see how my mind wanders....

This was painted in the run up to christmas last yr so i think the colours hinted at that time of year, the bushes and berries and the movement of a hurried long walk, and the sky and the thorny bushes and the open fenland.

A bird in a snow storm is what first came to mind.
