Here is the painting that I am currently working on. It is taking a bit more time then I expected. With the holidays, and all the sewing lately it is hard to find a block of time to work on it. I do have most of it mentally painted. There are certain patterns that I gravitate to again and again. In the bottom corner is one of my favorite patterns, it is a Scandinavian print. Scandinavian patterns tend to repeat and are minimalist in shapes and colors. I love to exploit these types of patterns by enhancing the pallet to draw more attention to that area, or keeping the colors monochromatic to add a sense of depth to a quiet space in a painting.
