Spring Colour in Winter - Greens Original Abstract

Titled "Move Me Green" 12" x 9" Original Acrylic Abstract
 artist Gwen Duda  2014
I've been very busy as of late - with surviving this most cold winter and trying to keep the studio warm breaking down chairs to burn. Nah, just kidding about the chairs but dang that studio gets frosty!

Well to warm our hearts this little number was done just the other day as I was wanting to just do a swatch chip chart of greens (green gold, phthalo greens yellow and blue shade, viridian hue, emerald green, etc.). Well one thing led to another and painting was born. So much for the chip chart! Hah!

I really love the flow of this piece and the warm and cool greens that interplay like they are swimming together in a delightful spring stream. Note the white accent in the lower left corner which is reminiscent of a water lily. My work is always nature-inspired, on way or another and I love the shape and colour of water lilies.
