This sunflower was a pure JOY to paint. The last few days I’ve been feeling a little under the gun – not so much for the performance (with a 100 paintings to do, I’ve learned to accept the output as what it is since I’ve only got so much time), but I’m feeling under the gun to produce. I need something worthy of putting online and putting up for sale.
I’m not so concerned about the sales aspect since that’s not what this challenge is about, but the business-y side of my brain is well aware that I had to pour money into this to make it happen. So making something worthy of displaying in someone’s home is definitely a factor.
Today’s painting lifted that pressure a little. It was less about having a desired effect and more about the enjoyment of sliding paint across the surface. The colors mixing and loving on each other is EXACTLY why I started out with silhouettes. Subject matter wasn’t my focus – it was all about the background.
Smooshing color is still totally my fav.
