It is amazing how the sun coming out can make
a difference in one's attitude. I think it is a symbolic
event as well as actual. I know it affects our bodies
and provides goodies we need. It makes everything
look more beautiful (if you are somewhere beautiful
that is). It gives hope on the deeper levels, the symbolic
gesture of light appearing and the clouds disappearing.
The sun is there when it is cloudy, we just don't see it.
It is sunny here today and the forecast is sun, sun, sun.
Light is a great thing.

These are some beautiful reds!!
We have sun but we have some wind too...typical Spring day!

Gorgeous painting and reflects the gorgeous day today that we've had in Walla Walla - the sun shining does lift one's spirits!

I think working a larger size suits you, Katherine! So much to see in this one. Not a boring spot on the canvas!

I love the colors here, especially the reds!

So is that circular shape in the middle representative of the sun? I like it!

Also, I love the movement in this one, specifically how the whites and the reds (in the lower left) streak horizontally. Almost reminds me of wind currents.

Very neat!

This painting is awash in light, Katherine--bold and beautiful (isn't that the name of a soap opera?) Amazing how that suggestion of an oval creates such structure in this painting.

Thank you Jeane. I wish you could too, then I would meet you. Maybe someday, we don't live that far from each other.

Thank you Mary Ann.

Katherine said...

Dianna thank you for commenting and visiting. It's another sunny day!

Katherine said...

Dean I hate to admit it but your guess is as good as mine as to what anything represents in my paintings...I just paint them. And yes I love painting larger formats, I feel freer. Thank you.

Katherine said...

Thank you so much Don. It is always great to hear what you have to say.

Katherine said...

Thank you Jeff for your comments. I will keep you in mind for printing.
