It's Complicated

"It's Complicated" 36" x 48" oil/oil pastel on canvas

 "Center Ring" 24" x 36" oil/oil pastel on canvas

 Results from my studio yesterday.  "Center Ring" started um....a little under TWENTY years ago. (I'm sure neither the painting or I can believe we are that old!) When I was doing some inventory I came acrossed it. I always liked it, but it needed something more.  I'm super happy with it.  She kinda got a makeover.  (Me next, please!)
"It's Complicated" came out of some sketches I did on vacation and found the perfect jumping off point here.

I enjoyed playing with the pattern, and these brighter colors seem to be popping up everywhere.
