Day 5 of the 30 Day Challenge

The start of a new series, Stability.  There will only be two panels in this series. Is that long enough to be a series?  I'm not sure, maybe I should just say first painting for a diptych.

Stability I by April M Rimpo

If you've been following my 30 Paintings in 30 Days I researched the meaning to different colors.  The Stability series is based on Red. I think of fire and excitement when I think of red, but Kadinsky associated red with lively and confident.  I never thought about red and confidence before, but I have noticed that a lot of women in the business world wear red when they are featured speakers at a conference.  

Other interpretations associate red with survival, self-sufficiency, and stability. The later became my title for this series. I feel like the black lines added some playfulness to this painting, what do you think?

  1. Nice rich color - a sense of playfulness, yes! This painting creates that feeling of confidence and stability - definitely. Great work!

  2. I love you vibrant colors and bold line work. They are really fun!

  3. Love the colors and the playful design! I think 2 qualifies as a series. :o)

  4. Lovely new colour scheme today! I love using red in my art, it does command the attention.

    Wearing red for difficult occasions does help me feel more confident. Interesting!

    1. I've never studied psychology but it is interesting how interpretations of color do seem right once I read about them. I wonder if it is cultural and the same color means something else entirely in different cultures. I suspect yes.

  5. WOW! so much going on, and it all comes together so beautifully! Looking forward to tomorrow :)

    1. I look forward to sharing the diptych. Glad you like it.

  6. I love this April! Red is also the color of LUCK according to the Chinese.


I look forward to hearing from you. - April
