Here is another painting that is growing on me. And teaching me more than I can ever comprehend. There is handiwork of the One above – in everything we see.
I now find reasons to go past by this painting which is now hung to dry. It will take a long for sure as it is laden with thick textures and thick colors
I started with turquoise, copper and Indian red as base colors. I knew it would be a landscape for the colors were speaking for themselves, conveying sky, earth and trees. As the new layers got added, a beautiful abstract landscape was formed. I cant even remember the number of days it took to reach here.
There was a danger of doing more work on this and spoil it. Thankfully, I stopped. This time I kept going back and looking at it as a whole and decided to stop. It seemed very light, beautiful and airy earlier with less darker tones. But with a little more brushwork and darkness around, it feels better.
Call it abstract, impressionist or anything, its beyond my care. I was and am stunned by the simplicity of this painting. It is growing on me at the moment. If there is a calling, this is it.
If there is a refuge for my soul, this is it.
