Here is a large canvas I recently completed. It was a work of intention; most frequently I paint without an end in mind. "In my head," I saw these big red flowers on an ochre background, but when I went to paint them, the flowers wanted to be different than what I "saw." And I do like these. Not realistic (I've never seen any flowers like these!), and yet they COULD exist. And in fact they do now exist on this canvas.
I chose red because I wanted this to be in our newly remodeled bathroom, and all the accessories are dark red. It fits quite well, and they brighten my spirit every time I look at them. Now back to simply PLAYING with paints, with no intention: my favorite.
