Art and Beauty Tuesday--Amanda Collins
This painting is called "Grove" by Amanda Mossmottle. I usually don't go quite this abstract, but I was struck by the color choice and frequency in this painting. The "early spring green" along with "earth brown" predominates, while the splashes of "lemon yellow" of varying sizes made me think, right away, of the daffodils that are just beginning to bloom here. This one really expresses the world in early Spring.
I've always been attracted to paintings where the paint is thickly laid on, like this one, as well.
As this painting implies, the world still looks muddy, but we are seeing the hope of Spring.
You can purchase this painting and look at her other work at her Etsy store.
