Oil on Masonite, 8x10 inches

This week has been busy and productive. I'm glad to have just finished the painting 'Transition.' It was a pretty exciting piece for me. I experimented with the colors, working with vibrant blues in the interior and subtle greens in the landscape. I also tried some new things with the composition. I wanted to create a scene that was based both on the real and imaginary that would read realistically. I also loved creating a contrast between the geometric shapes inside and the organic forms outside. 
I'm already really looking to starting a new piece!


  1. Your use of color--those blues transitioning into greens--conveys so much emotional power. Nice painting, Leah.

  2. Thank you Don! I've been trying to study how color can communicate mood/emotion. I really appreciate your comment!
