|"Still life with Shuāngxǐ "oil on canvas by Kerry Steele|
I finished this painting this morning. I am not going to stop painting abstracts but needed to "cleanse my palette" pun intended.
I have two abstracts that I have started and put aside in frustration.Distractions, duties and sheer exhaustion don't lend themselves to creativity so I decided to paint something I could see...sort of.
Part of the fun is not representing a subject but playing with color and line.
I got a little inspiration from my Meme (grandmother).
Painting in this simple, naive style was relaxing and quite satisfying. Now maybe I can get back to something more vague.
