This week in my Creative Spark class we have been studying color. I tend to be drawn to blues and greens but the mixture of green and white stood out to me this week as a calming mixture. For me, the life and vivacity of green coupled with the blank possibility of white create a balance of peace and calm. This painting was inspired by contemplation through our color exercises designed by Tara, a bar of soap, the lovely script text of a package at Trader Joe's, and the quote by writer Joan Didion included in the painting.
Below is the original painting before I cropped it to correct the wonky composition.
