A simple telephone call can turn into a creative few minutes if scraps of paper are at hand. The childhood habit of "doodling" is evident even when I am on the phone especially when I am having a light hearted conversation with a close friend. When working on serious paintings I shut myself in my studio and avoid any interruptions.But there are times when it is fun to take a break.
I think this collection of colour really does reflect the warmth and personality of the friend who had called me.The light really does reflect my mood. Carefree, happy and so full of the joy of new life that surrounds me this Spring.
Colour of Friendship
I love how granulation creates texture interest and the way a mixture of pattern edges give the loose interpretation of flowers.

As primroses sit on my studio desk in a pretty pot they are the main influence. I paint what I see as well as what I feel. Emotion is in this small piece as my feelings for this particular friend shine so brightly.
She is caring, genuinely warm and full of spirit.
Our paintings reflect our personality. Mine is gentle which often is evident in my brushstrokes.
I feel I have captured the colour of friendship in this unfinished piece.
And what a wonderful way to pass the time with a friend even if it is via the phone!
