The In and Out Back

Oil on Linen

I did manage to brave the elements and slide into the studio for the last two days to paint. Nice and quiet, just me with the paints. The painting led me. Once I had a few colors in mind, the painting and design shapes seemed to dictate something different and bold. It's nice to follow the flow and get lost in the work. All painters know the feeling. Every once in a while the painting paints itself. It dictates, we follow.
