This landscape/still life is about color, shapes and contrast.
Orange pumpkins/white pumpkins.
Spread out pumpkins and gathered pumpkins.
Orange against its opposite color blue.
The populated bottom two thirds and the empty sky.
There’s more. Happy Halloween week!
“Painting picture by picture, I followed the impressions my eye took in at heightened moments. I painted only memories, adding nothing, no details that I did not see. Hence the simplicity of the paintings, their emptiness.” Edvard Munch 1863-1944
This photo is about color, line and composition. I was drawn in by the yellow lines leading to the yellow window frames. The yellow wall on the left is balanced by the yellow sidewalk on the right. The vertical black line on the white wall is countered by the two black lines on the yellow wall. There is emptiness in this scene but also a bit of mystery. Don’t you want to know what’s around the corner? I did.
Dana and I went hot air ballooning over Napa this week. Great fun! It was a birthday present from my family that I finally cashed in. Thank’s guys!
The terrific company we floated with is Balloons Above the Valley. Two thumbs up.
