With a limited pallete I went into the space of Blue. Blue carries an emotion of openness limitless space, as well as fear and melancholy sadness. I feel a richness in the brush stroke, the thickness of paint, and the unified compositional space. Painted on two large sheets of paper this painting can be separated as a diptych or stay connected as one unified painting which is how it was painted.
