6" x 6" Oil on Cradled Panel
My heart wasn't into painting yesterday. I painted this quickly without a lot of thought and wasn't thrilled with the final crop but I liked the colors and I always enjoy working quickly!
6" x 6" Oil on Panel
I feel as though painting has been a challenge the past few days. Painting, scraping, wiping and painting again....And then running low on time to finish and post, so not finishing but still having to share. It is really a stretch for me to share something I don't feel good about but I know this 31 day challenge is about showing up at the easel everyday and painting. Not always having a finished piece to show but observing, putting paint on the panel, looking, comparing colors, values, relationships... but what I think I need to do more of is to play, to be bold and experiment. Not to play it so safe, to have some colossal failures and to be OK with sharing those and trust that it is all part of the process. Easier said than done!
After spending over 20 years photographing professionally I thought it was time to explore something new and experience my world with paint and a brush.
