Burnt Sienna is always on my palette and one of my favorite colors. Transparent and maybe a bit slow to wake up but once I have watered it well and let it come to life, Burnt Sienna is the warm earth hue of choice for my neutral mixes adding beautiful layers to other colors without staining them and without loss of transparency or intensity.
The herd of Belgian Mules in a field near my home have luxurious coats of burnt sienna fur that begged a quick study.
“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
