The first Purple, Red and Rose Blocks that I painted sold within 24 hours of posting it's availability. I don't usually re-create a piece like this unless someone request a commission, but Kurt suggested that I should do it again. I took on his challenge just to see if I could pull it off again.
The first piece glowed with excitement using bold bright colors that I don't normally use. My own insecurities had me question was the first one a happy accident or can I contribute it's success to skillfully executed painting techniques? If you have ever tried to paint a Rothko color field with acrylic paints you will know it's not as easy as it looks. My Rothko studies have helped me tremendously as a painter to learn depth and color combinations that I can use in all of my painting.
As for was I able to capture that same magic of the first painting? Let 's just say, I am very happy with this piece.
