We are having summer temps here in Michigan, which made me stop at the fabric shop and pick up some new fabrics to use for backgrounds. This blue stripe grabbed me right away..it transports me to a waterfront Cafe' on a beautiful summer morning...so excited summer is on its way.
Ok..I painted this last week, but it is one of those paintings that I didn't like immediately after I painted it. I lived with it for a few days before I started to see things I liked. I painted this one for an upcoming show March 24 at West Coast Coffee in downtown Grand Rapids. I am looking for feedback so let me know what you think.
I tried to loosen up a lot on this one...I like it. Also challenged myself with the red on red..always difficult, but I think it worked. If you are in the Grand Rapids area, I will be showing work during a group show at West Coast Coffee shop March 24, artist reception from 6-9pm. Stop by and see work by 12 wonderful artists.
