Curiously Colorful

16″ x 20″ Mixed media on canvas

This 16″ x 20″ Mixed media painting is full of color and curiosity!

I like that it lacks a focal point, but rather encourages your eye to jump around and explore all of the crevices and corners, there are so many nooks to get stuck on and drawn into. Don’t fight it, just stay curious. πŸ˜‰

I’ve noticed that I’ve been drawn to the brighter shades and hues in my palette lately, surely influenced by all the Spring flowers that are in bloom in our area right now!

Our small neighborhood in San Diego is very close to Balboa Park, which has over 350 species of plants, and over 500 kinds of trees. 🌳🌴 We are so fortunate to live within walking distance of such an amazing place! I drove by the famous Rose Garden today and was shocked to see, (and smell) it in full bloom, over 130 varieties and over 1,600 plants, it’s spectacular all by itself! πŸ₯°πŸŒΉ

I’ve been working on a new painting that I was hoping to publish on Earth Day, April 22, but I’m not sure it will be done by then. I hope you all find a way to celebrate Earth Day in a pro-active way, plant a tree, pick up litter, donate to a good cause, whatever it is, make it count!πŸ˜‰πŸŒβ€


  1. This is so bright and beautiful. I see lots of travel, buses, places and small cars. I love all the gorgeous color. Beautiful my friend. Hope you are staying safe and healthy. Sending you love in velvet bags with fairy dust. Hugs too. πŸ€—πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ§šπŸ»πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈπŸ§šπŸ»πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈJoni

      1. The fairies know these things. I just love your hair if I haven’t told you yet. You really rock that look. You have that artist look about you my friend. I use too but not as much since we are locked away. Your work is beautiful and I find myself really spending time with it. You never know what you will find. Sending love. Enjoy the fairy dust, you might try flying in your back yard tonight after you sprinkle the dust on your arms. Love ya πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ₯°πŸ§šπŸ»πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈπŸ§šπŸ»
