Lake Retreat

Here’s an idea I put together for a potential client. I painted some small color sketches but wasn’t happy enough with them… So I made this larger 11×14″ painting. I’m hoping they love it and want some version of it much larger. Below is a little detail photo. 

I have all kinds of memories associated with specific colors. Teal and salmon remind me of Tucson and a good friend and bike riding. And cadmium red reminds me of my grandma’s lipstick. So for me, this is a happy color combination.

What colors give you the strongest / happiest memories? You can let me know in the comments.
