I'm not sure if this is done but it's been awhile since I've posted my compass paintings and this one for now is done...pretty close to done! Measures 18"x18" on RVK paper. Two monoprints collaged, assorted paper collages, oil pastel, compass stamp, acrylic and plaster. I used my free paint. ...sienna and crimson which created a strong maroon. As I was painting I kept thinking how this color looked like something important in my life...maybe a favorite dress?... finally, I remembered we had maroon tile in our kitchen up until I was 12years old. I loved it as trim with white tile...the problem was that when it chipped my mother repaired it by using nail polish and the shade was always wrong. It made me crazy...I guess I was always into color.
My parents remodeled the kitchen and everything was beige...I missed the maroon!
Dona was here and we began our lunch at 12 and toddled away from our table around 5!! It was outdoor seating at a nearby resort with a fabulous view of the beach but it was Thursday and just a few busy tables. We drank, ate and talked and after lunch we stopped at a local bakery and Dona picked up some favorites for her family. Just before leaving for the long ride home, she purchased my Oasis II (sidebar). How exciting!! I have sold three pieces this month...I am grateful beyond words.
Have a great weekend!
