IMT: Limited Palette

This is for this week's IMT challenge of creating something in a limited palette of color. Although, I must admit that I did not do this piece this week. However, when I did create this piece, I intentionally limited my color palette. I opted not to work in the jewel tones (which am drawn to as a raven is to shiny things), but in earthy, muted tones. This is a reflection and summation of how I felt after a year's committment to create art each week of the year. I've made refernces to this project in previous posts as there were several of us who chose to do this ("52 weeks" which was on exhibit this past March at the OffCenter Gallery). I found that in making this committment, there was a sense of continuity in my life that transcended the distractions of day to day conflicts. Creating this blog was a part of that 'push' for me to create and to go beyond what I was used to doing. I think I have well over 123 posts (see the archived section)! I never thought I would ever have an on-line blog. I am inspired by all those artists whose blogs I've visited; those I know and those I've never met. It is an amazing community to be a part of!

A spectacular work of art! You leave wonderful clues and viewing this piece made me feel I was on a wonderful treasure hunt...searching for the WILD WOMAN of the QUARTZ HOT SPRINGS who travels to PARIS, respects Eastern philosophy and dances with CONTINUITY...

The green of this piece is such a lovely shade and ties in the imagery and other colors so well. I am reminded of the beautiful foliage in a forest or near a stream. There is a sense of strength and peace in this piece.:D

three responses to this work: 1) you managed to convey a tactile sensation on a flat screen...looks like suede! 2) the way the edges of your colors approach each other created a topography...some areas look like they're "higher" than others, and 3) the colors whisper of something mysterious.

okay four responses: i REALLY like this.

I love the soft, muted colors you have chosen for this piece and the clock face with the roman numerals. Beautiful!
