Going Crazy! Acrylic 20x30
Yesterday I painted with talented artist Franny Andahazy in Hull. Well, Paco came too, and despite the fact that he SOMEHOW jumped into my palette after I'd loaded the cad red and orange onto it (so he had one orange and one red front paw, one orange back paw and what LOOKED like lipstick). I was not able to concentrate too well after the Big Cleanup, but other than that he was very good. I was playing around with new texture in this big sunflower painting - channeling Van Gogh ;), letting it be about fun and color. Maybe after I work on it a little , doll it up a little, I might like it better. There are things about it (the squishy, free brushstrokes on the petals, the layered color of the background) that I do like, but it's like my left and right brain were doing battle.
Below... Paco as we were visiting his 'birth mother's' grandmother, after our session, where he ran around her yard and snatched Grape Hyacinths from their stalks, and lastly, a snuggly spot in my husband's jacket on a chilly morning - no other place would do... Pin It
