Well, here it is! I blogged several weeks about switching from working with the transparent realistic floral watercolors to the abstracts. I had really been resisting this, even though I was being told how well my abstracts were liked. I'm not really all that sure why it is that I've resisted doing these, but I made the switch because a local gallery called and I new they were more interested in the abstracts. I am so happy that I was more or less forced to make the switch. I have enjoyed doing these soooooooooooo much!! and it seemed to happen so naturally.
Also, I believe changing mediums and styles has inspired me with so many new ideas. I'm thinking that I would like to continue working with the realistics watercolors, but also begin to work some realistics on abstract backgrounds. I have found that I really liked working on this large canvas and painting with a palette knife only was new to me. I'm ready to do many more!!
Well, if you've been following this blog this is the last of those canvas's that I had laid out on tables, and began working myself around the studio with. This was the largest (3' x 4') and it was actually on the easel. I saved it for last, because it was the bigggest and it scared me. Funny, how those big canvas's don't seem so big to me anymore! I don't really feel as if this photo really does it justice. I really love all the colors and it looks great on our living room wall!
I now feel like I am so ready to go out and buy some more large canvas's and paint,paint, paint!! Hopefully, I'll begin to get a few sales and start spreading the joy and love around.
