The theme is RED!

If you check out June's blog, A Creative Dream you'll find a creative prompt for November and it's RED.  She has all the rules on her site and it looks like fun!  Here's something red for you. :)  A trip down memory lane for me...  We're not supposed to post this until Monday, but I might not have the time then.



This is an old painting of mine RED HOT! that I sold on ebay some years back.  My, has my style changed!  I used some really heavy texture in this piece.
Very cosmic, and undoubtably some red though you can count all the primary colors in this one. The ole Black Hole.


I actually ended up gesso-ing this piece.  It's all white now, with very heavy texture.  Looks like something from the 60s, don't you think.  What was I thinking...?  I don't know what to do with it.



This was a mixed media.  The flowers and the fence are cut from paper that I painstakingly glued onto the canvas.  I wonder where it is now.  Sold thru ebay years ago.
And yes, the reddish purse...  I use it all the time when I'm not using the blue one.  As you can see it was for sale at a local store, but nobody bought it, so I brought it home and put it into my purse stable. ;)

I'm more of a BLUE Green person, but red is one of those colors that makes you get up and GO!

Wow Maria, those are some gorgeous works with red... I think I really like the first one best... but then I love the poppies... and the one you gessoed over... they are ALL great!

Isn't it interesting to see how your style has emerged? I LOVE the painting with the poppies and fence-- wish it was hanging in my house :) Red is the best ;)
