Twisted Strands . . . In progress

 "Twisted Strands" (left) in progress
"Bands" (right) completed
 

I've been working on a new painting, "Twisted Strands."  It's in the "hanging-on-the-wall-so-I-can-ponder-my-next-step" phase.  Yesterday, I hung it next to "Bands"and I taped some waxed paper to it to get a sense of what a semi-transparent foggy rectangle would look like as a compositional element.  Today, I plan  to paint the rectangle, and to truly commit to laying some color down on the twisted strands.  

Cheers!

Both paintings are lovely, Gloria. I am surrounded by white snow falling so seeing your warm colours lifted my spirit. Thank you.

Thank you, Sue! Apologies for having missed your comment until now. -- I've still got the two paintings hanging together and I've been enjoying them that way, even though they're not really "mates". :)
