challenge accepted | 12 marks


Challenged myself to create 12 different yet cohesive pieces. Creating a consistent body of work that didn’t all look the same was more difficult than I anticipated. I found myself wanting to make the same marks and reaching for the same colors over and over again. But I learned to open up and let new marks and colors into my paintings. For example, I’m no longer intimidated by the color red; in fact I try to find ways to incorporate it into everything I make now. i also found a new fascination with the colors purple and yellow. i’ve gotten a lot of use out of my color wheel; matching complimentary colors; to see which color i might lay down next.

which one is your favorite?
