Oh the joys of creation!
Preparing for a private art show has certainly given me the motivation needed to paint. I purchased 7 canvases in September, after my trip to Alberta, with the idea of a show in mind. I finally completed the four “mini” canvases this week (8×8 inches), but am still working on 3 larger paintings, and the show is less then 3 weeks away.
This has been a magical process for me; the first works of art I have ever created so organically. Each one takes on a life of it’s own, and although I have an idea in mind at the start, I am never sure how the ending will unfold- and I have never been happier with results. I believe without the expectation for the finished piece, it has made the process much more enjoyable. It’s an exploration, and wonderful learning experience as an artist.
The style that has resulted from this series has had wonderful feedback, and I even have a custom order in the works. This is something I would love to do more of in the future.
