Cooperation between artists can take place in different ways. What about advise?
Yesterday I met Olga Dmytrenko, an abstract AW artist with whom I have momentarily a 2-women-show at
"Central Perk" in Newark Delaware.
(Check my blog for more info)
Seeing this painting Olga D. immediately advised me to hang it upside down. So I did.
Won't you agree?

Some info about this image:
While N.Europe is suffering from one of the worst wet summers ever, Pennsylvania (East Coast USA) is celebrating a long hot summer. That's what I LOVE of the States: their wonderful Spring, their reliable Summers and the long Indian Summer during Fall.
During the night it could rain, so the rolling hills of Pennsylvania still look quite green at the moment!
Not enough rain though (there's a drought!) for our yellow lawns...
These colors show it all:
fog in the morning
(due to the high humidity!)
and roaring heat during the day!


Choice of my color palette:
I used just a little bit of a complimentary color (blue/red) to give the green/yellow tones an extra enhancement!
Result: a conjugation of complimentary colors of this expressionistic view!


Medium: Acrylics
Dimensions: 18"x24" (46x61 cm) on a Studio stretched canvas.
Painted staple free sides.
Painting doesn't need a frame.

Absolutely Fabulous composition, Brilliantly reflective and Certainly Enjoyable.

Dear Olga, After writing on those other two, I want to tell you that this is in my top three in this small gallery, too. I don't know why I'm telling you, and everybody my ranking here. I don't usually believe in it, and it changes, sometimes the same visit! But I want to tell you that I am sorry that I have not been around more often, both because of what I've been missing and because you were so kind to me when I first joined this wonderful ArtWanted site. I have selfishly both working more on my own stuff and been ill a lot and trying to look around at lots of different people to get a better idea, or feel, for this site, etc. I realize again, more than ever today with your wonderful and varied work, how stagnating and harmful to any learning not to STUDY the best artists for probably as much time as one is practicing. Finally, for today, thank you for inviting me to post my Netherlands paintings in your "DUTCH" Group. I have posted several there -- actually about half of what I have, and will post some more soon. Thank you again, with admiration for all your work, Peace, etec., Bruce Combs
