Positive and Negative


Today I did this oil on location of a little jar of wild flowers on Galiano as the sun was setting.

It was a cloudy day at first that came with some negative feelings about motivation. I fought it all day with positive endeavours like my warm up exersices, hiking up the mountain, eating good meals and having a nap.

Close to the end of the day, I got to my easel to try building a little Plein Air painting. The first strokes turned to areas I could paint around to make “negative” shapes which allowed my eye to focus on the positive ones I built up with paint later.

In this context negative supports the positive. I think in my day it did as well.

May you have a positive experience along those that seem negative – In the end it’s all about balance. And may your day end well too. Jane
