Art and Beauty Tuesday--Brenda Thour

Follow Your Heart by Brenda Thour is a bright and cheery abstract painting.  Using lots of primaries as well as hearts and flowers, Thour used a paint knife for parts of this painting. The colors of the heart burst out and splash across the page while the blue in the flowers mixes in with the various blues that float across the background. The splash of white and black in the upper right corner is reminiscent of a smudged yin/yang.

Ms. Thour sells her work on Etsy and lives in Minneapolis, MN.

It's so full of passion and movement - and of joy. Paintings like this are great to look at on rainy days. They bring sunshine into the dark.

So glad you liked it, Michael. Thanks for stopping by.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
