Opening Reception:" August Light: Summer Painting and Sculpture

"Popping into Bloom", Oil on Linen, 30" x 24"  

"Popping into Bloom" Work in Progress
My husband and I both have four paintings in the Summer Exhibit at the Lyme Art Association in Old Lyme Connecticut.  The Opening Reception is on Friday, August 8th from 6-8pm.  If you're local, join us for a night of art, music and refreshments.  

I recently completed the above painting for the Exhibit. In this painting, I used a dark background to make the lighter colors stand out.  For the flowers, I used saturated color underneath and scumbled thin layers of lighter-colored paint to achieve the effect of transparency.
