Black, white & red all over.

As you might have noticed, I use the color red quite often in my paintings.  I can't help it, I love it and most of the time it usually conveys the proper emotions for me.  I've been using white more often as well.  I like the contrast against the splash of color usually involved in my pieces.  Today I wanted to do something a little bit different.  A little... paint by numbers I guess you could say.  I like it.  It takes a lot for me to restrain myself with colors, especially if forced to stay within the lines.  I had the amazing luck of being able to go out this morning and buy 20 canvas, some paint and a few new paint brushes, which motivated me to keep things going.  It's such a beautiful day outside today that I've opened all the windows to let the fresh air in and I feel good.  My eyes are doing better, not as blurry as yesterday thanks to some antihistamine drops.  Yay!  I'm going to go sit on my porch and write my Christmas cards now, that always makes me happy.

Full of cheer,
