Sky High start (acrylic on canvas, 16”x16”)

IMG_0141I started this painting today just to keep my brushes wet.  Having that simple goal – keep your brushes wet – seems to work for me.  There are days that I find it hard to focus and the discipline of wetting my brushes and diving in is great.  If that starts me, usually I get interested and inspired and challenged and I’m off to the races.

I began this painting with a violet watery under painting.  This loose paint runs and bleeds and blossoms as it dries and it glows through the later stages.  Ciao!
