So this painting came a long way from the last time I shared it. This is the first time I’ve photographed Canvas #1 horizontally but that is because there was no true orientation before so it didn’t matter.
I was working on this painting when Bear came down to visit me in the studio. He looked at my painting and said, “Looks good, I like it.” I turned to him and said “I didn’t mean to paint the bird, it just appeared.”
This bird is the result of the intuitive painting process I having been learning in Flora’s Bloom True e-course and I can say I never would have had the courage or the faith to just paint without this course. The idea of not having a plan when starting a piece of art seemed so foreign to me. But now over half way through this learning process I can see the beauty of not having a plan. And I find it particularly thrilling to know that this painting is not done yet!
Canvas #2 didn’t “reveal” quite the same way as the previous one, and I was feeling a little disappointed after the “success” of the first canvas. I had to remind myself that I was still in the middle of the whole process and there would be time for my painting to evolve into something more.
After working on it for a bit, I decided I was stuck and put the painting on the floor to add some fluid acrylic drips.
I have to say looking at the before and after photos now, I think I liked the before best, but at the time I didn’t feel that way. Oh well. I can only move forward from here and I will work with what is there.
