Location, Location, Location Redux

Another of my paintings, this one originally painted on paper, then mounted on painted wood, and here displayed in a setting akin to its original underlayers which evoked the outdoors in autumn.




Haiku on back:

The world deposits
layers, makes hills, whispers clouds.
We steal sweet kisses.

  1. Amazing how that background blends in. We get so much inspirations with what surrounds us, we just have to keep in tune!

    1. Wish I could have done better with lighting but isn't it cool to see this painting up against tree bark? Part of what I love the most is that I didn't set out to paint anything specific whatsoever—I just chose some colors, and one thing led to another as wordless inner nudges moved me along.

  2. Hi Dotty,

    So good to see your work again. As always I love the combination of your art and your words. The combination with the bark is beautiful!

    1. So good to have you back! Thanks for your cheering me on with my art and words. This was a painting I gave to Dave for our anniversary. Isn't the combination with the bark awesome—I just loved it. I had another photo of the painting resting in a leaf pile but the lighting wasn't good.

    1. Thanks, Katie! I've enjoyed mounting some of my paintings on wood as a way of 'framing'/finishing them. Very satisfying process, and the paintings become user-friendly art pieces that can be propped in a wide variety of places, and moved easily to a new spot at a moment's notice.

  4. Love the natural frame Dotty :) This piece is so wonderful. Found myself staring and taking it in. The light, the shapes, the wonderful sky. Those hills are so alive. The clouds.... Beautiful all :) And the haiku.. even more treasure :)

    1. Thanks, Sheila. I was very tickled that Dave expressed interest in it—he is 100% supportive of my life as an artist but he does wonder how the heck I got into painting abstractly : )

      Happy to know you enjoyed taking in the light, shapes, sky, hills, clouds, and haiku.

      Enjoy painting today! You ARE, aren't you???

  5. Oh goodness this is a juicy, wonderful painting! Love the setting...and these colors, so rich and tasty like dark chocolate with raspberry sauce.

    1. Jen, love your descriptors! Yum! Thanks. Browns tend not to be a go-to color for me, but in fact I do like them when I remember to play with them.
