103. Poppies in the Field

Images of the Palouse or vast fields of crops, such as rape seed, extending to the horizon, provide an abstract element of design.  Here, the colors and lines become the focal point, rather than the items themselves.

As I mentioned yesterday, simplification is something I want to work on.  Here, simplicity and abstraction go a bit further than I want, so maybe I’ll find a happy medium in between the two!

65. Poppies

The studio is finally sort of back together.  It was torn apart for flooring installation.  Putting it back is slow – I didn’t realize how much stuff I had packed away in it, and how little I want to put back into it other than painting supplies, photography equipment, and books.  It’s not gonna be easy.

So what!  When in doubt, paint!  And poppies are the best in a California spring!
