Nice color, balance and texture!

Ladders are so rife with symbolism!

Jacob's ladder going straight up to heaven.
These recent paintings of yours, Aurora, that truly look like rusty items thrown away into some desolate corner or meadow are very meaningful.

Aurora's the master of the limited palette that's rarely used and the beautification of the discarded.

Let me tell you, that yellow....ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm that yellow would keep me from climbing any higher on that ladder. I believe it's called being content with what one has, and where one is at.

Beautiful, as always.

the yellow niggles at me, perhaps the acidity is a bit high?

adore the composition and subject, you are the master of the "beautification of the discarded. "

Hey Peeps!
Thanks for the eyeballs and tapping fingers. Funny thing about that yellow. It's a new colour for me (light lemon). I like it, but yeah.... it's aciddy! Took me a bit by surprise. It's transparent too, though, which is way cool. It's not quite as aciddy as it looks in this picture, though, Jnet. It's a little more toned down with the white, but it really bounces in the photo.
Anyhoo, that strange little yellow is rocking my world right now. Nothing like trying a new tube of paint.
You know, my son walked through my studio today. He's been busy doing kid stuff lately and hasn't really seen any of these linear paintings. It didn't even occur to me until I saw them through his eyes that it's his art that's inspiring them (he's eight years old). And he loves them! lol. He walked past all the other new stuff without even a glance, but he really grooved on these. I've got a new one I'm working on that was off to the side and it's a seesaw. He said "Mommy! You're painting a see saw!!!!" He's used to me painting much weirder things, I guess.
Well, I hope you guys have a nice night. I really need to get my butt in bed, but I'm gonna look around in here a bit longer.

aurorapope,
What type and brand of white are you using? It looks thick and translucent like flake white but I could be wrong. I love the textures you are getting! Nice frantic brushstrokes and knife scrapes. I love your style, it is so much more than a simple rendering of what you see! All of your work has a metaphysical power that transcends the senses which is so refreshing. Synaesthesia on canvas. Great!

Thanks for the peeks! It's actually titanium white, Brian. I oil out for the last layer, and that helps it not to go chalky.
