Sugarbowl and Crabapple Blossoms o/cb 11x8.5So... my last post was about intense glow, using color to create the drama. Today's post is really just the opposite..I wanted to create a sense of quiet, peacefulness. The soft pastel colors and delicate handling of the sugarbowl and flowers is meant to bring the viewer to a more contemplative mood. The sugarbowl has an antique charm about it. Our world seems to have lost so much of it's appreciation for "delicacy". Now-a-days we want bold, powerful, colorful glitz and glamour. Sometimes it's just nice to appreciate something that is quietly beautiful.
