So it’s been a few days, and I must say I’ve been crazy busy painting in my studio! I am LOVING it! Finally I’ve got my passion and excitement for creating back. I realized I had grown rather bored and tired of my paintings. I had this sort of system down. I’d paint a horizon and add one color on top, one on the bottom. Then I had this routine for painting characters and sometimes it was super fun and easy and sometimes way too hard. I just didn’t have that joy going on anymore.
And this sad girl went from THIS…
to THIS super compassionate and energetic red head!
This painting really reminds me of the lovely Oprah Winfrey. She’s got that, “I believe in you, just believe in yourself” thing going on in her eyes. And I even added my fantastic new “Extreme” red glitter to cover the bird, just like Dorothy’s shoes, it sparkles with magic!
A few birds here, some paint splatters there. I tell you, it’s been sunny outside and here I am spray painting in my studio (windows open, of course). And I have so many more new paintings I can’t wait to share with you!
