This painting was a challenge to myself. I often paint with pinks or with whites as my main color. This time I chose turquoise. Let me tell you, it is hard to work with! I really struggled to continue to be free and open to the end. I feel very pleased with the outcome. Actually, I am so pleased - I think it is fabulous! It is definitely a Trixie painting but just a different approach!
There is a lot of depth and nuance to this painting that it is hard to capture in a photograph.
Like all my paintings, I will take great care in the rolling, packing and shipping of this canvas.
