6: Ruby Red
The center of the flower is the interest and the excitement. It is where the petals are formed and spread into the vastness. The added thrill is looking at the subject for the first time and then thinking how to paint without even sketching. There is a craving for looseness and freedom in the dancing of the brush. The paint is light at first before adding more and then leaving some. The light, the dark and the complementary. Approaching a painting style like this always makes me feel like seeing the sunset for the first time, or meeting my love, or traveling–pure exhilaration. Praise God for the beauty of His work!
