Visions of Spring I and II
I created Vision of Spring in 2013, it was a fun process to create this large abstract color painting. I love the colors and it has been consistently one of my top art pillow cover sellers however, this piece has yet to find it’s home. I think that’s been a good lesson about what is pleasing in one format may not work in a different one. I decided to keep the original design available for prints and printed products and add some embellishments to the large painting to play with it a bit more and see where it leads.
I added more gray, some sprigs of flowers and pod shapes for an delicate look. I loved the softer colors in the original and wanted to play up that feeling. I am really enjoying the vibe of the makeover artwork yet, I still love the original work. What do you think? Do you prefer the color wash before I embellished it or after? I found this to be a neat painting experiment and practice in letting go and moving forward when something isn’t working as it is.
