I love to paint in a series. I've noticed two different outcomes. Sometimes I love the first one I paint, because the subject matter is fresh and exciting. Other times, I get to know the subject through repeated paintings, and find that my 3rd or 4th painting will really express what interested me in the first place. That is what happened in this painting. The colors I saw in these Brown Turkey figs actually came through on the canvas. Love when that happens!!
The color yellow can be a symbol for enlightenment. Since my kids started back at school this week, I thought that was quite fitting! I hope they are clearing the summer cobwebs and starting to soak in all of that knowledge ;)
