Finished this one early this week. It had been sitting in my studio unfinished for a few months. I was looking at it last weekend, and suddenly knew what I had to do to finish it. The size is 19″ x 19″. I plan to go larger in my next paintings, before this I wanted to wait until I felt more comfortable with the whole process after not painting for so many years.
I think I can credit my recent class with Flora Bowley for the ease I feel now when painting. She reminded us to trust our intuition and just let the painting happen without thinking about what we are doing so much. I have been doing that and also painting with my hands some instead of a brush, with seems to be very effective. Besides acrylic paints I also used fabric and a little bit of sheep’s roving.
