|"Discovery Chains" oil on canvas in progress 36x36|
Thank you to all my blog followers, art friends, and international visitors. It’s truly an honor to share my art each with all of you each week. For my first painting of the new year, I chose a large square (36 x36) oil abstract roughly inspired by the limited “Zorn” palette. Anders Zorn (1860 to 1920) was a Swedish painter whose beautiful brushwork is often compared to Sorolla and Sargent.

For the red I used Grumbacher Red--napthol pigment is a nice substitute if you don’t want to use cadmiums.
2013 the color of the year is Emerald (my birthstone) so that’s next on my abstract “to do” list. In the meantime I want to wish everyone a productive and creative year filled with color and painting joy!
P.S. For more info about my painting classes in 2013 please write to me or visit my painting class page. Thanks!
