Red is the color
I have not painted in red before and I thought it would be easy after white. Once I got the background down I had no clue what to do next. I thought of a painting with a sweeping dress but felt constrained by my journal size. My pages are 7 x 9. Perhaps I need to try that on a canvas. Red just speaks passion to me. Passion about life and art and living authentically. I also think of red wine, which is my favorite especially Merlot. So I named her Merlot Lady. I like to think she has a merlot colored velvet dress on and that she is going to a special event. I think she should have some fantastic jewel on maybe I will add one later. I need to move on to yellow now.
