True Confessions Snippet, by Kim Blair

(close-up detail from larger work on canvas)

I have a confession to make... (but I have a feeling most of you know it already), I have a saturated palette.  There, I said it out loud for everyone to hear.  Rich vibrant colours make my heart sing and always put a smile on my face.  It has taken me a long time to admit this, but now that it is out in the open I feel a weight of paint falling off my shoulders.

Although I do have a weakness for monochromatic black and white work (some examples will be included in my grad show later this fall) my brush tends to be attracted to saturated colours, along with a variety of tints, tones and shades of various hues for added depth and interest.

I'll sleep better tonight now that my secret is out...
