Sunrise


 
What I love about having a little extra time off is that I feel a bit more free to explore multiple projects at the studio. I can let my "creativity-ADD" loose, so to speak. So this weekend I was working on my poppy series while also applying gesso and background colors to different canvases.


This morning I set aside the poppies to begin some new work.

I decided to kick off by starting on a second series of Women/Four Seasons paintings. Actually I've had "Autumn" nearly done for quite some time...I've been waiting for the time and inspiration to continue...


I worked a little more on "Winter"...


I was ready to head home for a little lunch...but then I grabbed another canvas that had some paint on it and started throwing on paint....it took off in a totally different direction than I expected. I wish I had taken a "before" pic, but I just kept going till I was done. A little over an hour later, I was done. Sometimes it's nice to do something fast...and different. I'll take a better pic later, but ...


I'm calling it "Sunrise".
