My dreamy state going to sleep gave me an idea for a painting. I finished it and decided it was boring.
After the color workshop I have been trying to be more daring in my use of color. I worked on the boring painting some more and this is the result. Still not as daring as I hoped, but it is a start.

I had this painting that took more hours than it should so I was loathe to just gesso it. After adding a few bars of tape and a sewing curve guide, I painted over it
I attended an excellent and rewarding workshop on color taught by Ken Elliott and Casey Klahn. Here is one of the exercises we were assigned. We watched a 45 second video of canola fields in bloom. We were to choose a scene from the video and paint it. Ken likes to use the square format and some of us were working on the suggested 30"x30" size.
