Color and Shape

Playing around with color and shape for a bit of down time today.
Now.... how to get those tomatoes to stay up on the wall ;)

Check out Carole's Blog! this weekend for the drawing challenge "Crow"...oh I wish I could partake!
 but I'll be following along to see one of my favorite birds (el banditio di nero) in many forms and shapes.
Have a good weekend!


  1. Wonderful juxtaposition of colors,objects, and photos! Can you tell us more about the square/diamonds? Size, material, and process? Did you create them?

  2. that colour playing! i must remember that when i need to get going again, it is very uplifing.
    have a swell time with your bird!

  3. Hi Kristen, I have the same questions as Gloria. Playing is good!
    Happy weekend to you.

  4. Hi kristen, yes this colour comibination is phantastic, but I'm totally in love with seastar!
    xo Barbara

  5. Dear Kristen,
    love your colour play!
    do you know Robert and Sonia Delauney? They were painters but even Sonia created fabrics with colours in simultaneous contrasts.

    Your cross stitch is also fantastic... that bird... could be a Crow.

    I have to follow that bird too, tomorrow.


  6. Hi! the paintings (top) are acrylic, lots of layers on masonite board- I think 6"by6"- I think about making a few more to create different patterns...and yes the Delauney's! especially Sonia- I am inspired by quilts...which kind of relates to the stitching sea star :)

    Thank you so much for your kind words!!

  7. life seems colorful and beautiful over at your place,i like that sea star with the wrinkling water and the mother of pearl makes it just perfect,nice to visit you again, xx
