Falling Up

November 1st, 2012

Day one and I'm already feeling super inspired. Bursting with ideas, excited about the excitement, energized by your energy. Thank you! I hope you feel all that energy coming your way too.

I had an idea in my head to paint a tree on a purple background with yellow leaves, but as I sketched it out today, the image came to me of leaves falling up, so I went with that. They didn't end up being yellow, perhaps another day, but I'm really taken with the idea of things falling for some reason, so I may play with that again another day. This piece is acrylic and ink on paper.
