30 Days of Aqua - Pairings

Now that my 30 Days of Aqua paintings are complete, they are finding themselves pairing up with their mates. Something about their natural affiliations make me happy, like finding one's tribe.

Even though the color Aqua is the tie that binds these paintings together, I wanted to be free to explore different strokes, and include imagery, or whatever I felt inclined to do in the moment. Sometimes just one limiting factor can throw the doors of freedom wide open.

But too much choice can be paralyzing and debilitating, especially in the creative process. It's always a fine line  - choosing just one theme/color/subject when there are infinite possibilities might seem like an arbitrary and unnecessary restriction, yet I'm productive, focused and free in the making. Whatever it takes!
