Making changes

Posted on


Being true to myself.

“There was no one around to look at what I was doing, one interested, 

no one to say anything about it one way or another. 

I was alone and singularly free, 

no one to satisfy but myself”

Georgia O’Keefe


This picture has been hanging in my studio 

for several weeks.  Today I decided to 

make some significant changes.


Taking a bold approach I added a lot of dark paint.

Prussian blue, cobalt blue, manganese blue.

Some red...permanent rose, alizarin crimson.

Plus cold wax medium and some titanium white.


Layering and rollering, the colours blended together.

Scratching into the layers revealed dry paint beneath.


‘Song of the Earth’

Oils and cold wax medium 

100 x 100 cm canvas 


It was a risky business...but I am satisfied.

No one to please but myself.


Thank you Georgia O’Keefe


Until next time...

Thank you for visiting.
