My word of the year for 2018 is CHALLENGE
(My husband said he hoped that didn't mean that I would be challenging him more than I already do)
I celebrated my 76th birthday in December so am very much aware that I must do what I love while I am lucky enough to be able to do it. Every day is a gift.
That said, I decided to try some "intuitive painting."
Another stretch for me, for sure. I am a controller and very structured. It is very difficult to "Let Go."
I went to the second hand store to buy the canvases so I wouldn't feel I was wasting money on a good canvas. I had to keep telling myself to just go for it, I could throw the canvas away and no one would be the wiser.
Very similar and I think that the shape of the canvas contributed to that. Will try to find a
square, used one for my next attempt. This was fun. Both canvases have 5 0r 6 layers, not counting
the one they came with. I also used oil pastels and then sprayed the whole thing with a
fixative when I was done.
Wishing all a Happy PPF
