Color as subject
Because color is often the true subject of a piece, I like to start a painting with a particular color in mind…which often leads to the title. In this case, Azure was painted with the blueish tint often seen in weathered wood. When you catch a glimpse of weathered clapboard, or barn board, particularly in late afternoon, a bluish hue emerges from what, at first glance, might appear as gray. With Azure, I amplified that blue, and built the remaining color palette around that central color.
This piece is available through Woodstock Gallery, Woodstock Vt.
