New Painting - I am thrilled

Untitled - as of now, I have a couple in mind though
24" x 12"
Acrylic and charcoal on hardboard

I did this in class yesterday - and I am so happy with it that I don't care if it is not polite or whatever to be so darn happy with your own stuff. It has energy, the colors and the feeling of the painting is joyful and light - and the textures and marks are exactly as they should be. It is exactly what I am going for - right out of my head - no reference. This is a HUGE breakthrough for me and I am downright thrilled!! Go me!! ; ) I will get a grip and be more humble tomorrow - but for today I celebrate. Can I do it again? - I don't know, but I did it once...that is a good sign. Excuse me - I have to go dance around now and giggle - see ya later.

  1. To Me your piece speaks of discovery, of breakthrough, of finding the power that propels you , of a bow opening the waters ahead of you no matter the obstacles. You Go Girl, well done. Keep seeking.

  2. I say hold your head up and be proud; your painting is beautiful:)!

    Thank you so much for your warm comment on my website; it really means a lot to me that you took the time to look at it. You know I love painting the pets and cows, most of them seem to fall off the brush. On the other hand, the plein air is a relatively new venture for me, I'm learning and having fun all at the same time.
