I really wanted to try out a yellow background. I not sure why. That was my over riding thought as I was heading to the studio this morning. I have had a couple of ideas for larger still life paintings recently using yellow, black, and white.
Upon arriving at the studio, I opened up the cabinet that holds all of my fabric backdrops. It turns out, the only yellow that I had was a blue and yellow Swedish table runner. “No problem.” I thought. “I’ll just repeat the pattern and use it as a wall treatment.” I’m very pleased with the result. It gives a wonderful feeling to the space that exists behind the yellow roses and footed silver bowl.
