My painting experiments took a different turn away from the scratch paintings that resulted in some completely different looks.  Although this one does have some scratch painting in it, I began to veer off that course here. I thinned some acrylic and some latex paints after watching Jane Davies doing it and just began to drizzle some paint onto the canvas.  This actually looked quite different at a number of stages.  I wish I had photographed it in process because  there’s another pretty good one underneath it. Now I can’t really remember it, except that I really liked it but I couldn’t stop playing around with it just then. Those drizzled paint lines are all underneath the many layers of paint the went over them but the texture of them is still pretty prominent in real life.

Linking up – Off The Wall Friday!

Posted by:turtlemoonimpressions

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
