Final Painting of 2012
Cooperstown Lake, 5x7" Acrylic on paper
©2012 Helen Read
This small painting is done with a pointillism approach. A variety of broken colors place in juxtaposition, so that the eye mixes the colors. This approach takes some time, but in the end has a very nice effect.
It seems as if 2012 came and is leaving rather quickly. Its been a busy year artistically, and this is the final painting of the year. Interspersed with all my artistic activity, I've also taught full time at the local high school, taken 15 hrs. of graduate credit, and had a variety of family milestones - both the engagement and marriage of my middle son and now, the engagement of my youngest - my daughter. Life seems to be taking on many changes!
May I wish you a wonderful 2013!
