The couple walking in the woods

Following my current theme of pink skies, I was inspired to paint this little painting today (50x50cm). It was a pure joy to create the two figures walking in the woods. Hmm, I wonder what they are talking about and what their story is? I have found certain success in using soft pink and lemon as the backdrop colours. I feel it lightens and creates a dramatic contrast to the heavy black foreground.

Freedom

The freedom of a little bird over a large icy city. So much freedom in fact, that the bird is on her way off the canvas. This piece is a study of space, cooler colours and the emotion of the little bird. The backlit silhouetted tree creates balance to the painting. The pale yellow sunrise announces the hope of a new day.

A blessed weekend to all – remember to enjoy the present moment!
