'Tuscany' began as a lilac blue painting with yellow ink dripped over it.  I gravitated to warmer colours, using greens and corals.  I did not have any imagery in mind, but felt the shape of my vertical brushstrokes lent themselves to forms which appear like Cypress trees, so I decided to play on that and translate it to an abstract Tuscan landscape.  I like that the composition offers more than one horizon, that your eye follows the drips of ink, creating movement in the work.  


I think 'Tuscany' would work really well as a focal point in a living area.  It creates a soothing mood and allows your imagination to wander.  The blues at the top and bottom of the painting were tricky to photograph.  I would say they are more of a cornflower blue in person, see video footage.
