When our leaves begin to turn and fall from the trees we know changes are coming. 
Soon the trees will be barren silhouettes against the winter sky. 
I am going to enjoy the rich layered colors on this painting.

"Scarlet Poppies" Intuitive Painting by Rusty Harden

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." Aristotle
Any one who has followed my work know that poppies always find their way into whatever style, medium , or dream I may currently exploring. Poppies amaze me on so many levels.
I especially love the way they dance on the slightest breeze.
We should all dance so easily.

"Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one."
~Stella Adler
Lingering too long, indigo can act insidiously. Enveloping a mood with inky darkness.
It is one of those places that there is a need to return from time to time. With an intuitive
process, I found the what I was seeking. Fear of a sudden escape and a boiling to the surface, I opted for the gentle release.

Painting Party for Cancer Research at Studio 14

I've heard that some would like to do this but they don't paint. Don't let that hold you back. The canvas comes with the drawing already on the canvas. With brush in hand, follow my very simple step by step instructions (no fancy brush stokes, just paint). You will be amazed at your own ability and better yet...giving to further a noble cause.
Take home your painting, put it in your office, give it to someone who needs courage.
Challenge your friends and workmates to join you and create memories.
Please pass this on to your friends.
