new colorful painting!

Yay, it’s been a long time since I painted something this colorful!

The basket was a challenge that my art teacher gave me… she knew it would be especially difficult to get the woven structure right. And it was.

I love the colors, they remind me of hot summers in Southern France, terra-cotta pots and bright white summer light. I can nearly hear the crickets in the background, the gurgling sounds of a blue pool surrounded by¬†Aloe Vera plants… I hope you can imagine it, too.

I still have a lot of winter ahead of me here but I’m already impatiently awaiting spring, the sun and summer!
