March 12, '13 , Acrylic on Gessobord (3/4" birch sides) 12" x 12" Ready-to-Hang
I really like this painting. Color in the midst of winter gives us hope, right?
Here's what I wrote the first time I posted this, for those of you who didn't see this one.
"I had so much fun with this style of painting that I decided to play with it again. As a watercolorist for almost 30 years, the first steps were reminiscent of the layering I used in a wet-in-wet watercolor painting. You have little control with this technique. It took me many years to learn how to let go, which matches up with how my life has played out. Why is it so difficult to let go, to let yourself float? Beautiful things can happen when you let go of the need to control every aspect of life. But, oh...it is so hard. This painting is a fun blend of watercolor technique where you let the white of the gessobord shine through the transparent layers
and acrylic opaques laid on top, defining the chaos."
