From Margaret La Bounty, regarding her two new Dreamscape paintings and the influence behind them.
A study in black and white. After working in some very brilliant colors for many months straight I decided to rest my mind and see what would happen to my style of painting using only shades of black and white.
I like what happened with the composition as it changed from a warm vibrant painting to an exquisitely cool and lonely feeling piece. I am happy with the outcome and it is very interesting what emotion we tie to color and how it changes perspective.
I think the question could be asked, was I painting what I felt at the time or did the painting change what I was feeling?
