When working with art, I always found red to be a little intimidating, mainly because red is difficult to photograph and hard to manage in almost any medium. In my paintings, red was always a color I had trouble with, it either looked too pink or ugly red… With paper, I have always had a difficult time finding the perfect shade of red, one that isn’t generic or makes me hungry (yes red triggers hunger, google it). One day while shopping for supplies I came across a book with 2 red patterns that I fell in love with and since then I have kept them and feared to make anything out of them because I would no longer have them! Ironic, that red always finds a way to not be my friend.
So finally, I gave in, and I have created this small floral piece inspired by this wonderful yet complicated color. Viva el Red!
