I have been painting abstracts. I start out trying for loose and large (ish). Before I know what happened, everything is tiny and tight. Ugh!! Today I thought I would go to one of my defaults, and try to salvage my bruised ego.
The resulting painting is not great. Not bad either. I am particularly happy with the sky, mostly because I thought I had botched it halfway through. And there was joy in the creating! That is a win anytime! I will try again with the abstracts tomorrow.
Alicia Tormey posted inspiration yesterday. A perfect reminder at the perfect time. Never ceases to amaze me how the universe works. I had listened to the video clip, gosh, maybe two years ago. I was very glad of the reminder, thought you might appreciate it as well.
Do you see the face in the clouds? Happy creating to you!
Trying to keep it loose. Thought maybe I should add some depth to the clouds, a bit of grayish brown along the bottoms. It wasn’t showing well in the scan. Well, not much better here but you can get an idea.

I never would have thought of postcards as an outlet for my art. I owe that inspiration to Kat Sloma and her Liberate Your Art event. There is still time to join this year, for anyone interested. It is free, and FUN!
