New School Color - Casey Klahn
Hello Casey, I've been following your River/Trees/Rain paintings. There's something really interesting happening with these. This is my favorite to date. The colors work beautifully, the line is exciting. My favorite part is the little peach/orange slashes above the peach/orange bank area. It just sings...and brings us momentarily out of all that rain!
Thank you, Sharon. You are catching on exactly to the idea - an intermission from the rain.
Your work has floored me lately. Wow! And I was screaming along with all the girls in the audience to John Mayer.
Thank you, Janelle.
water in my hair? ok, I buy that. This painting is fascinating..and I love the title. ooola la
I wondered about the title - it hasn't got "flow." Glad you like the picture, too.
Love the palette - my fave, orange - and the little sharp orange marks coming out of the dark.
It is a surprising assertion of orange. I think these sticks actually reside in my brown palette, but they are so strong/intense, and they favor orange for sure.Some patrons at the art fair wondered about my palette changes since they saw me there 4 years ago, and I said that I had looked in my box, and I saw a brown pastel.
Casey, I like the dynamic in this one. Color harmony is great, as usual, but what attracts me the most is the sense of very rapid movement, as if one was flying over the water. I haven't commented much but I find your new work very strong and beautiful to look at. I enjoyed every one of them, thanks for sharing.
Whee! is what I thought when I saw this painting. I felt almost as if I were flying. That's what the osprey I saw this morning over the lake must feel like wheeling on the wind.
