Juanita Bellavance, Variation 10, From Variations on a theme portfolio, Acrylic on canvas, 24 x 24 inches
A minimalist moment. I tend to enjoy clean lines and no clutter. This painting with large-scale shapes and a neutral palette is perfect in a minimalist environment. I love clear space.
The first memory I have of noticing a feeling in how a room is decorated was when I was about 12 years old. My mom changed our living room and the feel of our home with a simple change. She made curtains to cover the built-in shelves, painted the walls and covered the floor, all with the same shade of cool gray. It was a fairly small room but those changes created a huge impact on me as a child.
In this Variations on a Theme portfolio, I've been deliberately pushing past my inclination toward neutrals but I had to do at least one with neutrals!
