4x4 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord
Click HERE to bid on this painting.
No. 64 was a joy to paint. I got a little looser in my brush strokes which I like. This is the direction in which I want to continue. I am beginning to understand more about my path. I've always admired those that have found their niche or style in their art work and are able to understand and articulate where they are and where they are going in a particular piece or in their journey in art. As a relative beginner with no formal art education, I find that in my quest for information and self realization I tend to bounce around. There is so much art that I love and from which I can gather information on color, edge, value, etc. The workshops I have taken have been a tremendous help (a big thank you to all the instructors out there!!) So, although this may change (it surely will!) I hope to study more about brush strokes and how to express atmosphere and emotion. Gosh! I certainly have been rambling. I hope this makes some sense. If you have experienced some of what I am feeling and would like to share, I would love to hear about it. Now I am going up to my little studio and continue to put those miles of canvas behind me with a renewed sense of direction. My palette is ready to go, my David Shevlino DVD is on the table ready to watch during a break, and fingers are crossed.
