There is something about the rich warm colors of the sandstone next to the cold green water and blue sky that really get my juices flowing! The sandstone around here is crimson, vermillion, orange, salmon, peach, pink, and gold all swirled together with dark desert varnish. As much as I love and will continue to accept portrait commissions, doing something new is refreshing. I recently read an article that pointed out that only ever painting on commission is a huge creativity killer. Although I do enjoy commissions, I must admit it is liberating to paint whatever I feel like painting. And right now I feel like painting home.
