oil 11x14 on gallery wrap canvas not for sale
After not painting for two weeks, I found it difficult to get myself started. Started feeling irritable. (Just ask my dog.) Reminded me of getting off the bike while climbing a steep hill. Trying to get the pedals turning again, it's easy to fall if you don't do it right. So I found a subject that really, really excited me, then I painted bigger than usual, on not the usual support, with not the usual brushes. It felt new and fresh. I had a ball, and this is what came out. I like it so much I'm going to keep it.
It's really beautiful! Love the composition and the up-close view. Don't blame you for keeping this one.:)ReplyDelete
I can see why you are keeping it, this is stunning! I love every inch of it- Bravo!ReplyDelete
Qui s'y frotte, s'y pique !... Donc chasse gardée !... Il est bon de garder pour soi certaines de ses oeuvres...ReplyDelete
J'aime beaucoup l'harmonie des couleurs.
Incredible light and color. Great composition.ReplyDelete
I am with you on the struggling part. I think my issue is that I have agreed to do so many commissions. They force me to tighten up and I hate that. No choice though. I feel like I have a job at the moment.
You did a beautiful, loose and airy painting!
This is AWESOME Karen, congrats!!! Glad you found something to inspire you...!ReplyDelete

I can see why this subject excited you, it looks very cool! The light is perfect too!ReplyDelete
This is a perfect painting! Your enthusiasm for the light and colors comes shining through. It is nice to work larger sometimes- and sometimes total frustration leads to something wonderful, as it did here.ReplyDelete
