splash, splash....

'Pool Side Three'

If you have just happened upon my blog, this is the third painting in my figurative abstract category, the pool side series.  This one is of our daughter, Emma as a toddler playing in the backyard pool.  Gouache is a medium a lot like watercolors only opaque giving more of a flat appearance.  This type of painting would be matted and framed under glass for protection from the elements.

This morning I was reading a blog, that I found inspiring for cleaning out all that studio clutter.   If your an artist you know exactly what I'm talking about.  It's a lot like cleaning out a closet.  I have to work myself into the right mood, because I have a tendency to think to myself "oh, I'll use that one day or never know when I might need that" etc.,   So, if your like me and need that inspiration read this blog.
