Yesterday was a pretty emotional day for me. The last few days have been a little rougher than I am used to, but yesterday was something different. I paced, I tried to lie down, tried to redecorate, nothing worked.
Finally, at about 6PM, I went straight out to my studio and opened up my tubes of paint. I felt relaxed, finally not thinking about everything on my mind, in my own zone. I still have to go back to my zone for a bit more to finish, but here’s the result of my loose & free painting episode. I don’t know if I will ever be able to not paint realistically, but this is probably the farthest I’ve gone impressionistically. (Erikie? Do you agree?) It’s a good size, 12 x16, and I even painted it around to the sides.
