Humans are never happy are they? Too much rain! Now too much heat! Too much humidity! Whine, whine, whine! But actually I did have a productive day yesterday. A friend did several repair projects, the dogs got a good long walk and this little painting is done.

Flow 5

This painting is 6″ X 8″ on Fluid watercolor paper and I had no problems with the paper as I worked wet-in-wet. I just let it dry really well between painting sessions. Once again I tried to use primarily colors from nature and I forced myself to NOT include a circle or circles. That was the hardest thing about this painting. If you remember, my first Flow paintings had to do with blood flow, blood vessels and the infusion of a vaccine back into the blood vessels. Now I think more about the flow of our lives as I paint. All the ups and downs, curve balls we are thrown and how we adjust our course to adapt.

On to another super hot, record- breaking day. Maybe I should just paint the sun and the heat…HMMM, is that an idea? Have a lovely day!

    I see a gazelle or a similar animal running or jumping there. Flow is movement.

    I think this is one of your very best efforts! I love it. It sets me to musing and rivets my gaze.

    Lightning crashes! Thunder rolls! This is all about change for me. Tumultuous change. Love the purples. I always view violet or purple as higher knowledge. In this painting, it looks like it is being sent with force. Very nice.

    Believe me… those sphere will force their way back into your work! They are friend, not foe. I, too, like to keep them undercover every now and then.

    • Chris, you are so right! They are back in today’s post. I just try to break my patterns. There are times when I feel lazy and like I am using a formula so I try to push away a bit. But I really like those circles, spheres, orbs…

  5. aloha Linda – this is a powerful work. i like it. if it is reflective of your life (and yeah, i think it is) you are on a beautiful path. you are doing some way stunning things. fun. aloha.
