MONOCHROME STRIPES, Day 10

This post marks the end of Lesson 7, a lesson that I actually completed about a week ago in real time.

I'm exploring that barn again, with its dim lighting, its cool air, its deep shadows, its old splintery timbers, its traces of animal smells. I am content, relaxed, just poking around, not thinking about much of anything.

  1. Dotty, this is a masterpiece. I see the fading light in the sky, firelight, or lamplight within, and a bit of the moon reflecting. Really love this one!

    1. And the total fun of these paint quilts is that I was doing nothing more than using up leftover paint on my brush, which happened to be monochrome browns, and making stripes, which was the lesson requirement. The real lesson: "try" less! Thanks for your poetic feedback.

  2. I agree with Sheila. This one is really beautiful!

    And I think this is also one side of painting: just doing, just playing, nothing particular earthshattering, enjoying it. And sometimes beauty comes out!

      And, EXACTLY! Three cheers for just doing, just playing, nothing particularly earth shattering, enjoying it : )
