|Vintage Shells and Peonies|
This painting is "me", full of my favorite things. I love the Shabby Chic, French Country, Romantic style. It has an old vintage feel to it because of the palette, which I love. This is definitely a palette I would like to stick with for a while. I realized my paintings are always so bright (even this one is a little bit). I actually like more soft pastels most of the time, although I must say I can't resist the bright turquoise colors of tropical waters and a beautiful bold red dress! Anyway, I'm trying to be more aware of the palettes I use, and not get carried away with bright colors. Sometimes all that is needed, to make a painting work, is one bold color with the majority of the color taking a backseat.
