Petits Fours 3

Juicy thick color. Loose enough. Different enough. A painter's painting. Creativity expands the less you have to work with. So I purposely set up a simple chocolate and vanilla group to play with pigments. To tease lusciousness out of a limited palette.Line must work, form must work, texture jumps in to distinguish, one from another. That these serve to feed both body and soul must be apparent. And by the way, make it look easy. Why do we paint? Why do you respond? Because in the vibrations set up, there is an essential heartbeat. A call and response. And we all need that.
