About this Painting: The name “Three Breaths” is nod to the three clouds that punctate this composition. These white spaces create neutral areas to rest within the otherwise bold colors and brushwork of the painting. This work has a lot of energy, perhaps suggesting the idea of three quick breaths, instead of long slow ones. “Three Breaths” is one of the artist’s favorite paintings in the collection.
About the Fall Collection: This series of paintings is all about bright jewel tones and soft, hazy textures. They share a similar color palette with pops of alizarin, Indian yellow, magenta, phthalo blue, and viridian. Cloud elements are featured heavily, often in high contrast to a darker ground. These petite works would be perfect for a cozy space. Black floater frames are recommended to accentuate the paintings.
