Inspiration found in my paint towels

I’ve been spending as much home time as possible in my studio – working on my art practice.

Since my paintings have taken a new direction – the process can be slow and sometimes painful.

I realized this weekend that I have a tendency to outline everything – which is something I am having to keep at the front of my noggin when I am working to ensure it doesn’t sneak into this body of work. Not that there is anything wrong with a strong dark line – but I am trying to avoid old habits.

However, as much as I am conscience of the shapes I am creating on the canvas – I have been less conscience of the colors I am mixing together.

There is confidence found in my choices when I look down at my paint towels after a session and LOVE the color combinations I have chosen.

Now if I could only get my work to look and feel as free and loose as the “by product” does….
