Oil painting on stretched canvas
All paintings are shipped from my studio
Painted with passion and great energy. I didn't have anything in mind when I began this painting, but I knew I wanted to use fiery, hot colors...so...I just dipped my brush in the darkest colors first and began painting around three edges and bringing the color down throughout other sections of the painting spontaneously. The next step was gradually bringing in the lighter colors and blending them into the darker sections. It is such a freeing experience to paint in this way...try it!
Today's Quotation: "Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark."
~Amiel, Journal, 17 December 1856
