TAKING ANOTHER LOOK

Nothing new to share - yet - but I did pull out some older pieces and take another look.  What I found missing in them all was color and vibrancy.  No kick.  Dulled and timid color.  So I amped up the color in these - just for fun.

Love these colours! Lots of exciting oooomph to them. The greens and blues are delicious and I really like the composition in that one.

Looking good! Put mats around them and you will see how this makes them really stand out...You will love them!

These are all beautiful, Rhonda! I must say that those pelicans? Oh my oh my! I love that piece!

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks, Lisa, Christiane and Sherry. I think the pelicans are the winners in these three :)

I am a great believer in updating old stuff...somehow. And often it turns out quite well, like here :-) And this answer goes for your latest post, too.

Thanks so much, Jane :) Perhaps those paintings I throw away every new year should be covered in gesso and recreated :)

Thank you, Jane. I think the pelicans were the most favored by others who commented.
