This strikingly vivid painting includes shades of brilliant phthalo blue and turquoise, with titanium white and dashes of orange on a deeply textured canvas. Meditations or inner reflections can reveal a heavily-forested or stormy terrain to lovingly explore and peacefully appreciate! I was listening to a CD of operatic arias which evoked a sense of deeply-felt passion, drama, betrayal, pathos and desire. Interestingly, the origin of “aria” is early 18th century: from Italian, from Latin aer ‘air.’
Part of the Phthalo Blue: Meditations on Self series of four canvases.
