Different Stroke

Lemonade 18X24

As artists we many times get stuck in a box.  Either one that we create or others create for us.  I prefer to think and work outside of that box sometimes and thought it would be fun to do some work that was entirely different from my usual painting.  These pieces would go in the new Fresh Bakery in Camden and I wanted something with a color scheme that worked with the bakery's decor and something fun, lively and food related.  As I worked on my initial sketches with charcoal I became intrigued with the interfacing of shapes and patterns.  When I started working with my oils I was excited to see the colors bring the paintings to life.  I really had a good time with these!
