Pattern and sometimes chaos are what draw my eye and give me the itch to capture it on a canvas. Even in the calmest of views, I am still searching for the pattern. I love the challenge and it keeps me interested in painting almost any subject. I am back to one of my favorite things today.... an intimate floral of sorts...maybe an intimate frond :) I took a ton of pictures of palm branches silhouetted in the evening sunlight this spring with the intention of exploring them further in paint. This is the first attempt and I am really happy with the way it worked out. Mixing all those greens is not for the faint of heart!

Don't forget, all of my September paintings are 20% off for this month only. That 20% makes a big impact on a large painting like this one!
I hope if you are nearby, you will join me tonight from 6-9:00 at the grand opening of Olive's Gallery in Fort Mill, SC. It is a brand new gallery and I am thrilled to have twelve paintings hanging there! If you can't make it tonight, this exhibition will be up until the end of November.
