New School Color - Casey Klahn
Thank you for showing this. I don't know what it is--and I don'y want to know what it is. The colors and the composition and the textures are admirable just as they are. It has a completion or a fulfillment that boldly stands alone.
That's a fulfilling comment, too, Bill. I appreciate it, and I appreciate your looking in this morning.
Glorious, varied and exquisite transitions between colors!! This makes me want to run out to the studio and "fix" what was bothering me about my current painting. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This painting totally makes me want to sit down and try abstracts in pastel. It also looks bigger than its diminutive size.I'm guessing its foundation was based on reality, but you skillfully transcended that, and like Bill, I'm not sure what it is I'm seeing. But, that is unimportant. Love the colors and how you've used line here.
Kvan, I'm glad you have inspiration here, and I hope you'll look inside for more!I'll see you in a couple of weeks for the workshop.
Sonya - I am very glad you read and looked. It's funny because I fully see the riverside here, but I am delighted that others don't know what it is. Score!
This pastel's shades are so natural and subtle, the shift from one to the other is almost invisible. Mmm-mmm!
yeah. rain. I like it. there is something wrong with me. oh, I've said that before haha. Lovely painting
The others have stated their feelings about this painting so eloquently and I agree with them all! How on earth are you able to block out so much of the "noise' of reality to paint like this?
Thank you, Celeste!Donna, I guess that is the question. Block out the noise, I like that description.
Pure abstract? From Casey? Absolute abstract? Cool!
That's a good reminder that I need to take some play time for myself and do some absolute abstraction. This one is figurative, though.It is a tree on the right side, with a river at the lower left. This is an image I have done numerous times this year, too. So very happy that I stumped the panel with this!
Nope. I simply don't believe it.
