I have had a rough few weeks. A respiratory infection knocked me out over the Christmas holidays. I was a mess BUT then I got to pack up and head for Gulf Shores for the New Year’s holiday. We had warm, lovely weather much of the time and I was able to take long walks on the beach. I had my whole family with me and did painting sessions with two GREAT-Granddaughters during the week we were there. My mantra was “dream, laugh, doodle”. During our painting sessions we used tempura paint and cheap drawing paper. I completed this “dab. dab, dab” abstract because I wanted to do a cruciform composition and had to do something simple and mindless while I helped the girls (3 and 5 years old).

This was fun and I think I used so much yellow to represent the sunny, warm day. I was also thinking about Cezanne’s brush strokes that are geometric, broad and fragmented…dab, dab, dab. The three year old made a lovely color of mud and I got to introduce her to the color “ochre”. What fun!

    Excellent idea and fun to work with your grandchildren! I know the feeling. I am most impressed with your color choices, here. They work so well together! I love it when something works with yellow!

    The first thing I thought of when I looked at this was a scene of buildings on the beach. Nice.
