Just For Fun 10X8

Ok this might need some explaining.  After a few days in the studio that were just not fun.    I needed to free myself up some, so I pulled out some old canvases that were heading to the trash pile.  I decided to see if I could come up with a new image using parts of the left over image.   I like limitations as it gives me something to go on.  I also had to use up my  left over paint on my pallet. Somehow my limitations encouraged me to take more chances and follow my intuitive side as oppose to my analytical side.  I really like this painting because I got to paint without my thinker getting in the way  while at the same time  letting loose the kid  inside me who really likes to paint!    It ended up being a really fun experiment and I think I painted better the rest of the day after having done this.  I am going to keep this painting around as I think it is a good reminder of how fun painting can be.

  1. I like how you described your process. It IS a fun piece. I did one yesterday, too, and I agree, though I hadn't actually thought about it, that it made the rest of the day easier, sort of like meditating!
