"Upslope to the Blue Sky" by Karla Nolan, palette knife oil painting

Early morning simply is not my time of day. That's something of a shame, I know, because I miss all of the glorious sunrises! Instead, I lay in bed with all sorts of thoughts ruminating through my brain, about family, friends, art, chores to do this day, and so on. This morning I was remembering the above painting, a recent palette knife oil painting. It is a minimalist painting for me and I am so NOT a minimalist in my actual life -- more a clutterbug who wants to try minimalism on for size, see if it fits. Try as I may, I cannot help holding onto and loving certain things -- I find them hard to give away, as if I could give away my memories. So the painting today is dedicated to all of you who, like me, want to try out the zen or minimal approach but know yourselves better -- although, I must say, I do like a challenge and this painting represents a breath of fresh air!
