A Lighter Touch for Spring

Untitled: acrylic on paper, 11" x 14"

The season demands a lighter touch,

to sweep brush on paper,

to let colors swim and play, to caress,

then slide away.

Keep the white --

a reminder

of things to come, of what has been left behind,

of spaces for breathing,

for dreaming --

Beautiful color and look at that white...I rarely have the courage to leave the white. Nice piece!

I have to agree with Blue Sky. That negative space is superb and just draws you in rather than keeping you out. Thanks for stopping by our blog and commenting.
