I have been really letting loose lately after a few angsty days of trying too hard. I truly am an artist who prefers to follow my imagination rather than focusing on what my art “should” look like. Talk about freedom!
I saw a fantastic photo of one of my friends on Facebook and felt inspired by it. I asked her permission to use it as a reference photo. Heather Anthony Kieley lives in Arizona and the vistas there are quite beautiful. I used a lot of thick paint on a semi wet paper. I used my intuition in order to get the look I wanted.
I like to get in and get out when I paint. I have been called a “straight shooter” I suppose it carries over to my approach to painting. This is definitely an allaprima painting.
I made up for my angsty days by painting 5 new paintings in one quick secession, one after another and boy was it freeing!
#5 “The Forest Awaits” – 13 x 19 inches – abstracted landscape
Painting from my imagination is addictive! Yes, indeed. The thrill and magic of painting blindly is wonderful, give it a try sometime.
I kept at this until I was satisfied. It took me a few days to complete it but so worth it. It was as though I was being whispered to.
The last one group. Thank you for taking the time to read and view my paintings! Until next time!
