This is a companion piece to the work that I posted about a week ago, Olive Tree Grove.

On the subject of color, I don't know if I've ever posted about the non-objective colorist Joanne Mattera. Joanne is a blogger organizer, as well as a fine essayist on color. See her current exhibition post, Awash in Color: "No Chomaphobia". And, her recent post on color wheels is not-to-be-missed. It features some dated but fun color wheels, and a survey of some talented colorists that she recommends.

Here are some embedded videos of her Art Blogger Conference:

I love both of your Olive Tree paintings--the colors are luscious, mesmerizing; and I love the semi-abstract quality. I wonder what "liquid pigment" is ...?

Thank you very much, Laura.

Createx Pure Pigment is a highly concentrated pigment sent with water. I like it because it doesn't fill the paper tooth like paints may do.
