From the 'Internal Landscape' series
(where emotion lives)
36x24 oil on canvas
Heavy texture
paint knives
All c&c appreciated.(what does it need?)

I am going to be working with an interior designer
beginning in April,,,,,excited,,,,nervous,,,,,,
wired,,,,,wrecked,,,,,you name it.:lol:


Color in the first image is not good, it's actually very vibrant.
Close up shows the colors somewhat better. Lousy photographer I am!

Beautiful colors, and texture.... I would make diagonal stripes on top to break the pattern, and acheive more tension, but if you are only looking for tranquility in the painting, it works fine as it is as well....

Or else, I would carve, or scrape, into some of the squares (providint the oil is not quite dry yet) to show the layers underneath, if there is a different color there.

congrats Babs! Kick up a storm of great pieces!

i love your color choices

Iris,,,,,thanks for the suggestions!
The painting is well dried, so I cannot remove anything,
but am thinking about/considering your idea. I'll have to study
it, as it's already quite 'busy',,,,,,,maybe better to leave it alone.
Thanks again for commenting/suggesting.

Ordie, thank you too,,,,but I should have been patient
and tried for a better photo,,,,,,the colors here don't do it.

Jay,,,,,I'm storming,,,,and thanks for the encouragement!
Always needed/appreciated!

I also thought of some sort of quilt or patchwork design.

and the colours are bright and uplifting, but I espaecially love the textures -
something I find difficult to do. :)
