I am posting two finished paintings today to celebrate an unexpected day off of work. The temperature dipped so far below zero that it forced schools to close. I am spending all day in my studio painting away! I completed these two paintings this morning. When I selected colors for these paintings days ago, I did not realize I chose a similar color scheme for both. I find it interesting that even though the colors are similar, the method in which they were combined still makes the paintings look completely different.
