This painting recently sold. It was one of the few remaining larger cosmic type pieces I had hanging around my studio. It's absence is motivating me to paint another. It is a very freeing experience when I create a painting from my imagination. The finished piece is always a surprise...a very different experience vs. painting from life or from a photograph. I've got one large canvas on hand and have been 'seeing' either another cosmic scene or a larger angel painting being born...perhaps a large garden with light streaming in. I pray for the energy to be able to continue to paint all the images that pass thru my mind.
Today is the day we begin to paint in the workshop I am attending with Carol Marine and I am so looking forward it. I'll keep you posted...
