Google+ What I Made Today: Howling Heart in Progress

Howling Heart in Progress


The Art of Instinct has evolved into the Howling Heart. It's still a work in progress. I'd like for the values between foreground and to be more distinct, so I may push back the background by darkening it, but my sense is that this visual expression wants to keep the values closer than I feel they "should" be. And, well, that speaks to me too. And likely inspired the shift in title.

I'll have some studio time this weekend and will see if I can't get to the place of signing off on this piece. In the meantime, I share this with my creative friends at this week's Paint Party Friday and invite you to click over to visit some other painterly expressions from around this globe we share!

Peace.

I think the powerful, strong color combination creates the depth you need. Leave it as it is without darkening the background. It is beautiful.

I always think it is quite interesting as to when we fill a piece is complete or not.

there is a wonderful feeling of aliveness to it. I can almost hear the howl.

Love how this piece tricked my eye...at first I thought it was an abstract and then I focused in on the howler... What a wonderfully vibrant piece! Very special!

Hugs Giggles

I am so inspired by the energy in this piece - the sky and grass just grab me, and I love the orange howler as well. It speaks to my wonder at the turning of the seasons, and delight that winter has passed after lingering so long! xx Lynn

I think the background looks really lovely how it is! The paler patterns jump out of the blue and look almost electrified!
