Build Rhythms

Those spots from yesterday. Can you find them? I'll keep this short so you can easily compare yesterday's images.

Here's my play box at the moment. Yes, it's mostly green. The biggest shapes, the major chords, must be put into place. Sneaking in are little hints of what is to come. This painting is built around a triad of colors: violets, browns and greens. You see that happening already.
Tomorrow we will talk of sweet spots and vibrations. Time for me to go play some more. Who's my muse today? I think Allen Toussaint... bring me some of that Southern magic...take me away from all the chatter...and let me play in the paint.

Oh yeah, feeling mellow already.

Hi Janice,

Sorry you had to leave your home in New Orleans. I have never been there but have always wanted to go.

Thanks for sharing your pictures. They are beautiful. I used to be an artist, I still draw occasionally. It might be in our genes. My dad was an artist, and now my daughter is carrying on with all that.

I'm glad we had a good discussion over at Men with Pens. I'll bookmark you site so I can come back and visit. I'm finding I don't like RSS feeds.
